Student Veterans of America

The mission of the Student Veterans of America (SVA) at UIW is to expedite, facilitate, and reinforce the successful transition for U.S. military veterans and their families to university life while fostering a lasting bond of friendship with veterans of allied armed forces and mentoring the next generation of military and civilian leadership.

Our Motto

"Dignity, Loyalty, Fortitude."

Since the founding of the SVA in 2008, over one million veterans have returned home to pursue a postsecondary degree or certificate using VA Educational Benefits. To meet this need, SVA’s presence at the local and national levels has grown to include over 1,300 chapter affiliates, numerous private and nonprofit partners, and most importantly, an expanding list of impactful programs and services for veterans.
