Military Service & Veterans Network

Since the battle of Princeton was fought in 1777, Princeton University has been a historical location for veterans and their families. This historic event, which took place on Friday, January 3, 1777, ended in victory for General George Washington and his troops against the British Army following the Battles of Trenton and Assunpink Creek. The highlight of the battle happened right in the heart of Princeton University, in Nassau Hall, where the British Troops surrendered to Brigadier General John Sullivan and the American Troops, which ended the Battle of Princeton.

For generations, it has been our highest honor to support the soldiers and their families who have served our country. Whether or not you have served, you are welcome to join our group! Our MSV network is open to faculty and staff and their friends and family.

Our Mission

The Mission of the Military Service & Veterans Network (MSV) is to serve as a University resource on all veteran-related issues, aligned with the University's strategy to attract, select and retain employees with military service, serve as mentors to newly hired veterans, and help inform our hiring managers of the importance and benefits of selecting candidates with military service.

Our Goals:

  • To sponsor activities and programs which provide opportunities for members of our veteran community to educate, promote interests, and build unity.
  • To facilitate discussion of current issues and interests concerning the veteran community as well as their support structures.
  • To ensure a strong veteran presence at Princeton University and its surrounding communities.
