Emotional, Social and Academic Support

Student Groups

Students Serving Veterans
Fuller veterans have recently become an officially recognized chapter of Student Veterans of America (http://studentveterans.org), making it part of a national coalition of over 985 student veteran organizations in all 50 states. In addition to advocating for veterans on a national level, SVA provides scholarship opportunities, and training for student veteran leadership, to include annual conferences. It is the mission of the SVA chapter at Fuller to support veterans in the Fuller community by increasing awareness and acceptance of veterans on campus. The SVA chapter also helps serve student veterans seeking ministerial jobs after graduation, and informing all students about careers in the military, to include but not limited to chaplaincy and psychology, through Fuller's Schools of Theology and Psychology.
