WELCOME STUDENT VETERANS!
Transitioning from military life to higher education presents the veteran with a set of challenges that have commonalities among veterans but are also unique for each veteran. At Wichita
State University, we have outstanding pre-enrollment programs, like the WSU Trio Program Veterans Upward Bound, to assist veterans with remedial education needs, personal services, planning and
guidance that enhances veterans success prior to entering higher education. The Student Veterans Organization (SVO) was created to address and continue addressing veteran needs while going
through the higher education experience. The Student Veterans Organization (SVO) saw a need to focus on the veterans needs while in school, enriching the school experience and enhancing
overall veteran success for veterans who join the organization.
The Wichita State University Student Veterans Organization (SVO) has several primary concentrations which are:
Provide opportunities for socialization and campus involvement that enhance personal wellbeing, transition and academic experience.
Assist SVO members with individual needs that may hinder their success in obtaining a higher education degree.
Enhance veteran self-worth and the welfare of others through opportunities of philanthropy within Wichita State University and the community.
Advocate for SVO members at the University, local, state and federal levels when issues arise that harm, disenfranchise or marginalize the veteran population.
Member meetings are generally held on one Tuesday in the afternoon and one Wednesday in the early evening each month. Check this website and facebook for exact meeting times and location each
Membership is open to all students, dependents and those who have a desire to be a member. If you are interested in becoming an organization member, fill out the application form on the
