Peer Advisors for Veteran Education (PAVE) is a “peer support program that connects incoming student veterans with student veterans already on campus in order to help them navigate college life, identify challenges they are facing, refer them to appropriate resources on or off campus, and provide ongoing support to their academic and personal ventures.” The PAVE program originated as a collaboration between the University of Michigan Depression Center and the Department of Psychiatry, and the Student Veterans of America.

In the 2016-2017 academic year, over 120 student veterans participated, linked to approximately 15 Peer Advisors who assisted these incoming student veterans. Additionally, Peer Advisors were assigned one of three Team Leads, who were responsible for the management, coordination and training of their assigned Peer Advisors.

In 2016 PAVE was designated as a Division of Student Affairs High Impact Practice (HIP) for the participating Peer Advisors and Team Leads. The VRSC contacted Student Life Studies to provide assistance in assessing the defined learning outcome and the reflection exercise for the Peer Advisors and Team Leads. Rubrics were developed to measure interpersonal and written communication skills, adapted from the Texas A&M University Division of Student Affairs Student Leader Learning Outcomes (SLLO) project interpersonal and written communication rubrics.
