Student veterans group has 1,000 chapters

Student Veterans of America announced that it reached the 1,000-chapter mark in April with the addition of a chapter at Florida’s Saint Leo University.

Founded in 2008, the organization met its goal of 1,000 chapters two years ahead of schedule, said SVA President and CEO D. Wayne Robinson.

“We feel this is a testament to the tide of veterans who are seeking higher education and see the power and value of being involved with an SVA chapter,” Robinson said.

The advocacy group has a voice in virtually all matters pertaining to service members’ higher education at a national level. It most recently made headlines by releasing the results of its Million Records Project, which, if somewhat controversially, put numbers to higher education outcomes, including graduation rates, among student veterans.

SVA has weighed in on controversies surrounding certain for-profit colleges — pointing students to the www.benefits.va.gov/gibill/feedback.asp complaint tool — and speaking out in favor of Congress’ GI Bill Fairness Act, which would require states to grant in-state tuition to veterans before allowing GI Bill funds to be used at state colleges.
