Fifth Annual Student Veterans of Virginia Conference, November 8th

Our focus for this year’s event is keeping Virginia Veterans in Virginia. We want to have the discussion on how best our colleges and universities can support or service members and veteran population in transitioning and succeeding in the Commonwealth.

The afternoon conference will feature military affiliated and university veteran resources around the state of Virginia and an opportunity for networking with a panel discussion on moral injury after a screening of the documentary of Almost Sunrise later that afternoon. View the campus map.
