Chapter Success Manual


Success in 3-D: How to Design, Develop and Deliver a Thriving SVO is a compilation of the collective knowledge and experience of the Military Family Research Institute (MFRI) at Purdue University and Student Veterans of America (SVA), from our collective and individual work with student veterans' organizations (SVOs) and SVA Chapters. It is designed to be a resource for student leaders who are thinking about starting an SVA Chapter or looking for ways to take their existing chapter to the next level and for advisors and others who want to know more about supporting a chapter.
