Our Mission

     The Mission of the Military Student Center is to provide the necessary resources and assistance to veterans, active duty, reservist, national guardsmen, retirees, ROTC students, and family members to aid them in attaining the highest level of success at Austin Peay State University. This is achieved through workshops, programs, on and off campus resources, as well as providing opportunities to network with other like-minded individuals through the center. The center is open to all students, staff, faculty, and community members.


 "The nation owes a great debt to its veterans, whose service to the nation spans every decade, every year, every day of our country's existence. Through untold courage and sacrifice, America’s veterans have secured the liberty which the founding fathers sought to establish here in the new world. Whenever and wherever the nation has called -- in times of darkness and danger as well as in times of peace and prosperity -- America's veterans have been there. Veterans have proudly carried the torch of liberty for all to see.”
