Many veterans encounter only expected, short term issues when they transition from the military to campus life. But some may face more serious challenges, including academic issues, family stress, financial struggles, or emotional concerns. The earlier these issues are addressed, the more likely it is that the veteran will have a successful academic career. The PAVE Program has been designed to assist student veterans in successfully achieving their educational and personal goals.
Peer Advisors for Veteran Education (PAVE) is a peer support program that connects student veterans on campus with Peer Advisors at their schools who can provide support and link them with resources to facilitate a smooth transition to college or help them navigate challenges they are facing.
Peer Advisors are student veterans on campus who are uniquely qualified and trained to assist their peers. They are knowledgeable about resources on campus, at the VA, and in their local communities, and understand eligibility requirements for benefits and entitlements.
