Established in 2012 as Student Veterans Organization at UW Tacoma.
SVOUWT represents over 400 UW Tacoma Student Veterans and nearly 600 military-connected students.
Over 80 active members as of August 2017.
Partners with UW Tacoma Veteran & Military Resource Center for programming to assist Student Veterans in higher education.
Student Veterans at UW Tacoma began in 2012 when a group of University of Washington Tacoma veterans came together as a way to build camaraderie in campus veteran community.
Since that time, our membership has continued to grow along with the military connected and veteran population on campus. Today, UW Tacoma's student veterans make up nearly 20 percent of the student body population.
Our continued mission to provide camaraderie within our community has expanded to creating opportunities for campus and community engagement. We also facilitate access and travel to veteran transition conferences, while building relationships with campus leadership to create veteran-specific programming to help veterans make a successful transition from service
