USC Marshall Military Veterans Association

The mission of the Center for Innovation and Research on Veterans & Military Families (CIR) at the USC School of Social Work is to strengthen the support network of veterans and military families.

Through education and training, innovation, research and partnerships, CIR bridges the gap between military and civilian communities. The center guides behavioral health practitioners, develops new technologies, informs policymakers, builds community networks and produces research with real-world applications.

The USC Emeriti Center in partnership with Student Affairs’ Veterans Resource Center  has created a way for USC retired and active faculty, staff and alumni veterans to offer friendship and support for USC student veterans.

The USC Student Veterans Support Network  provides a place for current and retired faculty, staff, and alumni Vets to register their interest in connecting with USC student Vets. Fellow Trojan veterans supporting student veterans is just another way for our Trojans to support those who have been through similar circumstances.

If you are interested in being contacted by a USC student veteran please sign up here.

The USC Alumni Veterans Network (USCAVN) strengthens the community of Trojan veterans through social, educational and service-oriented engagement opportunities. The Alumni Veterans Network is open to all USC alumni who are veterans.

 The Virtual Food Pantry is an emergency resource for USC students. Dornsife’s Leo S. Bing Chair in English and American Literature, Dr. Leo Braudy, and his wife Dorothy Braudy, generously donated the funds to initiate the virtual food pantry in response to food insecurity experienced by students on campus. Thanks to our new partnership with Campus Activites, the pantry is now able to serve more students during the 2017-2018 academic year. Contact: Jennifer Perdomo (jlperdom@usc.edu
