On January 11-12, 2008 around 20 schools came together for the first national Student Veterans of America (SVA) conference in Chicago, Il. Since this time, more than 60 schools have joined SVA in the fight for a new GI Bill and address the issues facing student veterans nationwide.

Military Service Members and Veterans in Higher Education: What the New GI Bill May Mean for Postsecondary Institutions, released by the American council on Education (ACE), draws on numerous data sources to help higher education administrators understand and anticipate the enrollment choices of returning veterans and military personnel and the services needed to accommodate these students under the new GI Bill. The report, authored by Alexandria Walton Radford of MPR Associates, Inc., is part of ACE's Serving Those Who Serve Initiative, and was proposed with support from Lumina Foundation for Education. Get a copy of the report here.

ACE's Serving Those Who Serve initiative is a broad-based initiative designed to promote access to and success in higher education for more than 2 million service members and their families who are eligible for newly expanded benefits under the new GI Bill.

The most recent publication from Serving Those Who Serve, From Soldier to Student: Easing the Transition of Service Members on Campus, offers a first-of-its-kind national snapshot of the programs, services and policies in place on campuses to serve veterans and military personnel, as well as areas in which campuses need to improve their offerings.
