To provide military veterans with the resources, support, and advocacy needed to succeed in higher education and following graduation.
All veterans will succeed in higher education, achieve their academic goals, and gain meaningful employment.
Today's veterans face numerous obstacles in their path of attaining a college degree. These challenges range from a missing sense of camaraderie to feeling like an outsider amongst 18 year old traditional students to a lack of understanding by university faculty. When coupled with the visible and invisible wounds of war, a college degree can be an elusive goal for men and women returning from military service. Student Veterans of America (SVA) makes that goal a reality.
WMU Student Veterans of America is a way for veterans, currently serving military, ROTC Cadets and their friends and families to find support, resources, and the advocacy needed to succeed in higher education and employment. If you would like to be a part of the WMU SVA, please contact Jonathan Jackson at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also visit the SVA website at studentveterans.org for further information.
Meetings are held every other Thursday of each month during the fall and spring semesters.
