Student Veterans of America

The Student Veterans of America (SVA) is a 501(c)(3) coalition of student-veteran groups on campuses across the nation. The purpose of the SVA is to build camaraderie, provide academic support for veterans and their dependents, reach out to the military and veteran community, and to build veteran awareness on campus. Moreover, the organization hosts social events and workshops, while providing volunteers throughout the community. The UH chapter was established in January 2014.
