Our Mission

In recognition of the highly specialized needs of veterans, in 2013, Excelsior established the Lt. Col. Bryant A. Murray Veterans Center, a virtual center that serves veterans and military service members wherever they are and whether or not they are Excelsior students. The Veterans Center addresses the various educational, tuition and scholarship programs and their availability, connects veterans and military members with resources on health and wellness, suicide prevention, military transitioning to a civilian environment, and much more.

Inspired by her father’s illustrious 30-year career in the U.S. Air Force, Excelsior alumna and former trustee Bryanne Hamill created two endowment funds to support veterans through scholarship awards. In addition, her generous leadership gift funds the Lt. Col. Bryant A. Murray Veterans Center.
