Student Veterans Organization

The UCCS SVO provides veterans, military members, and their families with resources, support, and advocacy needed for student success during and after enrollment at UCCS. The SVO is a chapter of the Student Veterans of America (SVA), a national coalition of campus veterans support groups focused specifically on improving conditions and support for student veterans.

Join us.

Reasons to join the SVO:

  • Regain sense of purpose and pride that comes from serving your country.
  • You have energy and effort to serve your community but you don't have an outlet to do this.
  • You sometimes have trouble communicating with people that haven't served in the military.
  • You want to be networked with a group of supportive individuals that can provide important information about courses and professors to take, effective tips on transitioning your military skills into marketable civilian skills, or expand your social circle.
  • Support veterans in their academic and career goals, regardless of whether you served in the military.
  • An opportunity demonstrate your leadership abilities while you are a student at UCCS, and build your resume for career opportunities while doing this.
