A Student Veterans of America survey

Service Member to Student Survey:
Veterans' Perceptions of Transition, Higher Education, and Success
As more service members make the transition from military service to higher education, it is essential to understand the role of education in veterans' pathways to success. This week, with support from a Google Global Impact Award, the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF), in collaboration with Student Veterans of America (SVA), will launch the 'Service Member to Student Survey: Veteran's Perceptions of Transition, Higher Education & Success' survey. 
This IVMF survey aims to explore post-service pathways for military service members and their families throughout the entire education life cycle. The survey will be the basis for an online resource repository and other tools that will will assist service members and their families in their educational transition and post-service success.
Aims & Goals
Your responses will inform research which aims to shine a light on a missing national picture of service members and their families' experiences in higher education, and explore student veterans' views on their educational aspirations, opportunities, challenges, and barriers. By collecting and analyzing this data, the IVMF research team will identify promising "best practices" for military service members and their families at colleges, universities, and training programs across the United States. The research results will be invaluable for the military and veterans' community, and for advancing academic research on veterans. It will assist education and government thought leaders in better supporting returning service members in their educational attainments and in developing educational models for veterans' post-service success.
The Next Step
If we can get significant participation from military service members (active duty, reserves, and guard), veterans, and their families, we can identify "best practices" for veterans' success in education, and address challenges and barriers hindering veterans' educational achievements. Help us ensure a bright future for those to come.
