University leaders share message celebrating military members and veterans

Chancellor Daniel Diermeier and Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs C. Cybele Raver shared a message with the Vanderbilt community thanking veterans and military members for their service and many contributions to campus life.

“Throughout our university’s nearly 150-year history, members of our community have served with distinction around the world in times of war and in times of peace,” Diermeier said. “We are proud to educate the military leaders of tomorrow through our Army and Navy ROTC programs, and to support veterans in making the transition from the military to positions of civilian leadership through our Bass Military Scholars program.”

“We are also proud to support members of the military through our research and discovery, working with them to develop innovations that assist their work in the field, and through annual symposia examining America’s readiness and the threats to our national security,” Raver said.

Vanderbilt is honoring the service of military veterans through a series of events, articles, videos, social media posts and more to commemorate Veterans Day 2022 on Friday, Nov. 11.

“Thank you for your service, and for embodying the courage and commitment so essential to our work as a university and to our future as a nation,” Diermeier said.
