Valor Project


Saint Xavier University is committed to its student veterans and is grateful for their many contributions. Understanding the struggles faced by veterans returning to academia, the National Alumni Board of Directors has created the Valor Project, designed to support student veterans and their dependents.

The Valor Project offers financial support for books, supplies, transportation costs and assistance for emergency situations. For the program to be successful, peer mentors are needed to engage our current students with meaningful networking opportunities and career counseling. Your participation will help these veterans learn skills that will enhance their lives. For all that they have sacrificed, they deserve our support.

Alumni interested in mentoring student veterans should contact Jeanmarie Gainer, director of Alumni Relations, at gainerFREESXU.

In 2021, SXU was named a Military Friendly® School by Military Friendly®. For the 2020-2021 academic year, SXU was named a "Best College for Veterans" by U.S. News & World Report and earned the Military Support designation from Colleges of Distinction.
