Peer Advisors for Veteran Education (PAVE) is a peer support program that connects incoming student veterans at Oregon State University's Corvallis Campus with student veterans who are trained as Peer Advisors who can help them navigate college life, address challenges they may face, refer them to appropriate resources on and off campus, and provide ongoing support.

Work is being done to expand our program in the future to include OSU Cascades and Ecampus.
