The Veterans at the University of Idaho is an Affiliated Student Organization and a Student Veterans of America (SVA) Chapter. Last year we were able to send 3 student veterans to the SVA's 2019 National Conference in Orlando, Florida. This year, we would like to send 3 more student veterans with your help.
SVA's 12th Annual Annual National Conference will be in Los Angeles, California, January 3-5, 2020. The National Conference is an annual gathering of student veterans from across the country that strengthens ties between veterans and higher education communities. The National Conference offers educational breakouts, inspirational general sessions, networking, and professional opportunities designed to support student veterans and prepare them to become tomorrow's leaders.
As the largest event of its kind for higher education leaders, policy makers, and stakeholders, SVA's National Conference is the premier event for supporting and enhancing student veteran success. This year SVA expects over 2,000 student veterans, alumni, higher education personnel, researchers, and policymakers to attend.
Student veterans face many obstacles while trying to complete their degrees. They tend to be older, have families, be employed, and may have service-connected disabilities. The SVA National Conference provides workshops, breakout groups, and information sessions aimed at providing student veterans the necessary tools to succeed in school, while also connecting them to like-minded and similarly-situated people from across the nation.
Help us prepare today's veteran scholars to be tomorrow's leaders by providing opportunities for their educational and professional success.
