Veteran Victory Begins with a Battle-Buddy Connection: Unity of our peer-to-peer program (PAVE) with UNLV's School of Social Work
Track: Student Success Track (Sponsored by Southern New Hampshire University)
The purpose of this session will be to highlight the importance of veterans helping veterans and the positive impact for student veteran success. The UNLV veteran peer program (a partnership with the University of Michigan's Peer Advisors for Veteran Education (PAVE) program) has improved veteran success by developing a partnership between the PAVE program and the School of Social Work. This new partnership has been beneficial for not only the veteran population being served, but also for the veterans completing their social work practicum. The information presented will be based on the UNLV PAVE-Social Work collaboration and the positive impact on student veteran success that has occurred as a result.
This presentation will highlight the best practices for case management, the gathering of veteran community resources, and how to advocate for veteran success on campus.
