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 Veterans Upward Bound, to assist veterans with remedial education needs, personal
services, planning and guidance that enhances veterans success prior to entering higher
The Student Veterans Organization (SVO) was created to address veteran needs while going through the higher education experience. The SVO saw a need to focus on the veterans needs while in school, enriching the school experience and enhancing overall veteran success for veterans.
The Wichita State SVO has several primary goals:
To provide opportunities for socialization and campus involvement that enhance personal wellbeing, transition and academic experience.
Enhance veteran self-worth and the welfare of others through opportunities of philanthropy within Wichita State University and the community.
Assist veterans with individual needs that may hinder their success in obtaining a higher education degree.
Advocate for veterans at the University, local, state and federal levels when issues arise that harm, disenfranchise or marginalize the veteran population.
