The Student Veteran Community advocate program is an initiative that places student veterans in various campus offices to deliver programming and resources for the broader veteran population on campus. Advocates act as a liaison and connection point to Student-Veterans on campus and they build relationships with campus departments. Advocates facilitate the campus office's learning about Military & Veterans issues. Campus departments provide mentorship, guidance, and leadership opportunities in diverse, inclusive environments, with the goal of developing the students holistically. The Veteran Community Advocates are scholarship recipients and serve in a one year term during the academic year.
