Launched in 2007, PROVE (Project for Return and Opportunity in Veterans Education), strives to create an environment in which veterans can more easily access the resources they need to successfully transition from military life to student life and find a community of other student veterans.

Those who served in the Army, Navy, Air Force Marines, Coast Guard, National Guard and Reveserves are leaving a close-nit community built upon intense shared experiences. Providing a strong, supportive community focused on the specific neeeds of student veterans will help them with their transition.

PROVE offers campus support teams made up of social work interns, student vet mentors and experienced field instructors; all of whom work together with existing campus professional staff to connect new and current student veterans to the resources they need as they transition from the military to college life. PROVE is currently housed on ten campuses within the CUNY system (BCC, BMCCC, CCNY, City Tech, Hunter, Hostos, John Jay, KBCC, LaGCC, and Queens College).
