The Military & Veterans' Employee Resource Group (ERG) is an affinity group for military reservists, veterans, their families and allies at NCAR/UCAR/UCP. The group provides a network of support, raises awareness of veterans' issues and honors them throughout the year.


  • Connect veterans with each other for camaraderie, support and mentoring.
  • Continue the sense of mission & cohesion from the military to NCAR/UCAR/UCP.
  • Identify pathways from military service to NCAR/UCAR/UCP careers; increase awareness of opportunities for internships and employment.
  • Highlight veteran advocates across the organization who mentor, provide resources, and translate military experience into civilian lingo.
  • Leverage veterans’ technical & leadership experience in all aspects of the lab’s work: logistics, planning/management, trades/tech, engineering, and research.
  • Build community through events (Veterans Day, Memorial Day, 9/11, July 4th) and activities (Toys for Tots drive, local USAFA, JROTC & ROTC partnerships, Social Meet-ups).
  • Earn a reputation as an organization committed to veteran hiring, retention, and professional development.
  • Support other affinity groups and cross-collaborate to achieve intersectionality.
