Student Veterans of America (SVA)

Posted: Updated:

Hey, there are a lot of students attending college on the new GI Bill, and they're working together for mutual benefit. I think I'll shut up and let them speak for themselves.

Student Veterans of America (SVA) is a coalition of student veterans groups on college campuses across the United States. Our mission is to provide military veterans with the resources, support, and advocacy needed to succeed in higher education and following graduation. We envision all veterans succeeding in higher education, achieving their academic goals, and gaining meaningful employment.

The key to SVA's success is the member chapter. These student veteran organizations, or SVA chapters, are formed on college and university campuses to provide peer-to-peer support, coordinate campus activities, provide pre-professional networking, and generally offer a touchstone for student veterans in higher education. Every SVA chapter plays a critical role in supporting veterans reintegrating back to civilian life and achieving academic success.
