The overarching mission of the Military, Veterans, and Families Initiative (MVFI) at George Mason University is to give back to those who give to our nation through four primary pillars.
First, Mason helps educate service members, Veterans, and their family members with scholarships, specialized education pathways, and support from our Office of Military Services.
Second, Mason provides free or low-cost direct services, like legal assistance, mental health services, and arts and music workshops, to service members, Veterans, and their family members.
Third, Mason is working to provide specialized training to students and professionals in several fields on how to work effectively with service members, Veterans, and their family members.
Finally, Mason conducts high-impact research on issues related to warfighter readiness and to the health and well-being of service members, Veterans, and their families.
