The SVA is a service & advocacy group at Portland State. We work to promote, unify and advocate for the veteran voice on campus. Our mission is to bring past and current members of the Armed Forces together to promote, unify and advocate for the veteran voice on and off campus. Our aim is to educate the community about how the military has affected our lives and to support one another through the process of re-integration. We’re also dedicated to creating social networks for vets at PSU. Please feel free to browse, see what we’re about, give feedback and get involved!
