The Student Veterans Association of Portland State University exists to bring past and current members of the Armed Forces together to promote, unify and advocate for the veteran voice on and off campus. The group aims to educate the community about how the military has affected the lives of service members and to support those returning home from duty through the process of re-integration. The SVA stands ready to help student veterans achieve their education goals, providing information about veteran benefits and resources, and raising awareness when policies contradict the interests of our Nation’s heroes. The SVA provides the means for veterans’ concerns to be voiced in a safe and constructive manner and to bring awareness of these concerns to Portland State University and elected officials at various levels of Government. The SVA is about PEOPLE not politics (except when those politics deal directly with helping veterans and their families.)
