main goal of the VSSMP is to leverage the experience of current students to
optimize the educational experience of new students, in this way:
• Junior, senior and graduate-level student veterans apply to be mentors and receive training to prepare them for the role.
• Incoming student veterans are matched with mentors according to area of study, extracurricular interests and other criteria.
mentees have agreed with their assigned mentor on a contact schedule, they will
be delivered academic, campus life, and education benefit reminders. Assigned mentors are available during breaks
and between semesters for tours, benefit questions, help planning class
schedules, or any other support a mentee might require.
