About the SVA

 

SVA Logo

The University of Southern Mississippi - Student Veterans of America (SVA) was established to serve our Veterans, Service Members and their Families in honoring their sacrifices and commitment to Our Nation.  We strive to promote the memories of our Veterans of the past by serving those who have elected to make Southern Miss their University home. 

We are a non-profit organization with goals in promoting outreach efforts, membership drives, campus-wide engagement and scholarship development.

Being a member of the Southern Miss SVA or the SVA Spouse or Family Member Auxiliary Program opens doors for you to a larger Family.  Membership is open to any Veteran, Service Member, Military Spouse or Family Member attending USM as a full or part-time student. 

The Southern Miss SVA and SVA Spouse and Family Member Auxiliary Program plans to provide the following support to campus events:

Promote and actively engage in the “Veterans in the Classroom” project in support of the

  • Hattiesburg and Lamar Count Schools Districts Middle School Classrooms
  • Volunteer in supporting SVA sponsored community engagement projects
  • Assist with the USM Campus USMC Toys for Tots program
  • Assist in Veterans Scholarship Fundraising Campaign
  • Work with local youth on yet to be determined SVA sponsored projects

The members of this organization associate themselves as an advocacy group for servicemen and servicewomen of every branch of the United States Military. This organization is associated with a national organization.
