Student Veterans of America

Student Veterans of America (SVA) is a coalition of student veteran groups from college campuses across the United States. Founded in January 2008, Student Veterans of America is a 501(c) (3) tax-exempt organization that works to develop new student groups, coordinate between existing student groups, and advocate on behalf of student veterans at the local, state, and national level.

The Student Veterans of America’s three primary missions are to develop student veterans groups on college and university campuses and coordinate by region between existing ones; connect them with resources; and advocate on behalf of student veterans at the state and national level.

Benefits include:

Peer-to-peer networks for fellow veterans, campus activities, and pre-professional networking. Members can also communicate with executive staff who can connect them to resources outside our campus.
