Part of SVA’s mission is to advocate for student veterans. We defend the GI Bill and support policy that best empowers student veterans to achieve their educational goals. SVA is largely recognized as the organization representing the interests of student veterans and GI Bill beneficiaries due to the 1,200+ SVA chapters on campuses nationwide. The more chapters in the network, the more effective we are at influencing policy on behalf of all student veterans.

At the Federal Level

SVA has formed a close relationship with the two of America’s largest and most honored Veteran Service Organizations: The American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Collectively, we are working on a number of issues, but specifically to reduce GI Bill benefit delays, improve access to consumer education tools, and to establish in-state residency status for all GI Bill beneficiaries.

On-Campus

SVA also encourages and trains chapters to be advocates   on campus to institutionalize programs and policies that support student veterans. Each chapter has the potential to be a catalyst for local change. Great examples of SVA chapters advocating for supportive services include, Florida State University, the University of Arizona, the University of Southern California, and many others.
