Harvard Undergraduates Honoring Veterans cover
Mission Mission Statement

The overarching goal of HCVEI is to unite veterans, Harvard students, and community members in public service.
HCVEI works to achieve this goal in four main ways: by

1) increasing student awareness of the fact that veterans are assets, not charity cases, and want to hear “we still need you” as well as “thank you”

2) facilitating student involvement in organizations that help as well as challenge and engage veterans in order to support veterans’ efforts to contribute to the wellbeing of our society

3) creating a more veteran-friendly environment on campus by connecting veterans with undergraduates through the common goal of service

4) hosting service projects throughout the year in Cambridge and Boston that bring together veterans and non-veterans alike.


HCVEI works year-round to help veterans continue in public service after their military careers have ended, as well as to increase undergraduate appreciation for what veterans have to offer as civic assets. We hope that this organization will help lead to a fundamental shift in the way veterans are viewed both on campus and around the country and inspire undergraduates to a lifetime of public service.

2) Why Veterans?

We believe that the skills veterans have developed during their experience in service and leadership positions are valuable and untapped civic assets. Veterans are often unfairly portrayed as charity cases or as weak or needy. In reality, veterans just want to hear “we still need you” as well as “thank you”—though they may have lost an arm or leg in combat, they have not lost their desire to serve. When veterans are challenged to continue their service, it enriches entire communities, enabling veterans and non-veterans alike to work with a common goal. The best way to live out the ideals for which our veterans sacrificed is through service.
