OVP Student Sponsor Program

Peer mentoring program in which successfully transitioned student veterans (“Sponsors”) are paired with incoming student veterans.

Sponsors assist incoming students with acclimation to student life, gaining access to university and community resources, as well as providing opportunities for socialization. Sponsors meet monthly with their supervisors (licensed mental health professionals) to discuss/evaluate student progress, needs, and referrals to the Office of Veterans Program staff for those who require additional assistance.

The program ensures that incoming student veterans are supported during their transition to academic life and serves as a gateway to the Office of Veterans Programs’ holistic model of veterans’ assistance.
