The Military Resource Center (MRC) opened on October 31, 2012 to serve the military student population attending the university by providing linkages to resources and programs designed to assist in their pursuit of a college degree. The MRC, located in the Thurgood Marshall Library was partially funded through a grant from the Thurgood Marshall College Fund and generous support from the colleges and schools of the university.
The MRC is designed to be a Point of Contact for veterans and active duty military personnel and their dependents. The primary goals are:
The MRC is working to serve as a community hub in the Bowie Maryland region for veterans and their families. The university understands the importance of being a good community partner on this and many other issues in order to enhance the understanding of and solutions for situations and issues that impact this our student veterans.
External agencies are incorporated into the community and assist in its evolution and contribute into the development of a functional community that serves the needs of the veterans. The recruitment of external funding sources also allows the MRC to be more flexible in providing services to veterans and their dependents.
Bowie State University is only at the beginning of its program for those who serve or have served in the military and their dependents. We will continue to work to evolve the MRC and other programs that serve the military population and the greater community. We have completed the first of many steps in providing our students with the support they need and deserve.
