PAVE at the University of Oklahoma

PAVE is a peer-to-peer program that connects incoming student veterans attending college with successful student veteran peers on campus to provide support, help them navigate college life, identify any challenges they are encountering, and refer them to the appropriate resources on or off campus. OU has five student veterans serving as PAVE advisors to newly incoming students which makes OU's current PAVE advisor to incoming students ratio 1 to 20.

Whether you are a new student who has completed your service, a student who interrupted your education to serve and are now returning, or a student who began your studies elsewhere and are transferring here, we will help guide you to the resources you need to make the most of your OU experience.

PAVE is a collaboration between the University of Michigan, Student Veterans of America, and a network of partner campuses. The program was developed at the University of Michigan through grants from the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation. The program is currently on over 40 partner campuses nationwide.

OU  is proud to have Boeing Company
as a PAVE program sponsor.
