USAA--Gold

USAAGold

At USAA, we are passionate advocates for military members and their families. The same core values that guide our military inspire USAA employees to go above and beyond for our members each and every day.

So it should come as no surprise that our members and employees share a strong and lifelong bond based on the military experiences and values we have in common. At USAA, we understand that bond better than anyone else. We have built a team of military leaders who deepen and strengthen that bond day in and day out. USAA's Military Affairs team is comprised of retired officers and senior noncommissioned officers who dedicate themselves as advocates for those who are currently serving in our military, all those who have honorably served in the past and their families.

Institute For The Humanities at Old Dominion University--Bronze

Institute For The Humanities at Old Dominion UniversityBronze

We are a collaborative research and social innovation incubator in the College of Arts and Letters at Old Dominion University. We help foster synergies among activists, artists, scholars, engaged global citizens and local community stakeholders who are searching for entrepreneurial ways to reshape people's lives. We have a particular commitment to social justice, social entrepreneurship, community engagement, design thinking, cultural studies, and the digital and medical humanities.

 Above all else, we are humanists, which means that we believe that people - when given access to critical tools, skills, and literacies - can become agents of transformation in our society. We serve as stewards of such critical sensibilities, seeking creative, innovative, and multidisciplinary opportunities to engage students, serve our communities, and participate as citizens. In short, we aim to provide future leaders in the arts, the humanities and in public service with the toolkit and training they need to become social innovators and implement sustainable change.
