To promote a successful transition from the military to the academic environment, the Veterans and Military Student Services has a Student Veteran Mentorship Program. The Student Veteran mentors are current University of Memphis student veterans who assist incoming veterans on the transition to college including:
- Communicating with new student veterans during the New Student Veterans orientation
- Meeting with each student individually
- Encouraging Student Veterans Organization (SVO) involvement for leadership development and growth
- Providing student veterans with information on academics, extra and co-curricular involvement, and health and wellness
The Student Veteran Mentoring Program is overseen by the Veterans and Military Student Services Coordinator who works with current and new student veterans.
Please contact the Veterans and Military Student Services at 901.678.4269 if you are interested in participating in this program.
