Leading Through Service at VMI


Faculty, staff and cadets, join the VMI CORE initiative!

CORE stands for Community Outreach and Renewal Experience. This initiative, guided by the VMI Service Committee and the student-led Rotaract Club, helps facilitate cadet, faculty, and staff engagement in local, regional, national, and international volunteer community service opportunities.

The VMI experience emphasizes the value of service by preparing cadets to become citizen soldiers who will serve their country and communities.

To that end, VMI offers a number of opportunities to learn about service at the local, national, and international levels. Classroom experiences and hands-on participation in community projects give cadets an awareness of the importance of service in the lives of citizen-soldiers. 

The VMI Service Committee functions to identify, coordinate, and promote cadet participation in clubs and programs focused on service.
