9:50-10:50 - One hour session
The Society of Jesus, also known as the Jesuits, was founded by St. Ignatius of Loyola after recovering from a battle wound and overcoming the challenges he faced while transitioning from being a warrior to a civilian. Due to the deep historical connections to the military and the Jesuit values of care and service, Georgetown has the opportunity to honor St. Ignatius by serving the military-connected community who are a part of the campus as students, faculty, staff, alumni, and neighbors.

The Veteran Education Training (VET) Ally Program is designed to start a dialogue among the campus community to identify the strengths and challenges service members, veterans, and military family members face while pursuing their academic and career goals in a civilian environment. The mission of program is to provide military students with a welcoming and supportive environment and build bridges of understanding between the military and civilian communities. The seminar will offer a brief history of military students in higher education, identifying the services available both on and off campus, how to be a supportive faculty member or administrator, and perspectives from current military students.
