Help Send Tech's Student Veterans to National Conference
The Veteran’s Association at Texas Tech (VATT for short) is the local chapter of the Student Veterans of America.
SVA was founded in 2008 following the passage of the historic Post-9/11 GI Bill, the largest expansion of education benefits since the World War II–era GI Bill. They have grown to represent student veteran communities at more than 1,500 colleges and universities in all 50 states and 5 territories, and 4 countries. SVA is the first and only veteran service organization of its kind, and the only organization in higher education, focused on delivering the advocacy, resources, programs, and research needed for veterans to succeed in higher education and beyond graduation.
SVA empowers the student veteran population by:
- Helping veterans become informed consumers of higher education and decide what to study, where, and how best to utilize their earned benefits.
- Supporting veterans on campus with our network of student veteran communities as well as individual programs and services.
- Connecting veterans to gainful employment during or post-graduation.
- Conducting groundbreaking research on Post-9/11 GI Bill graduation rates, student debt, and more.
- Advocating with lawmakers on behalf of student veterans to protect the integrity of the Post-9/11 GI Bill
