OVP Student Sponsor Peer Mentoring Program

The Office of Veterans Programs (OVP) is a peer mentoring program in which successfully transitioned student veterans (“Sponsors”) are paired with incoming student veterans to assist them with...

  • acclimation to student life
  • gaining access to university
  • community resources
  • 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.
