Veteran's Club

The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology Veteran's Club was established with the main focus of assisting South Dakota School of Mines and Technology students with any military affiliation, including veterans, family of veterans, active and reserve military students, and family and friends of deployed students.

SD Mines Veteran's Club is a chartered member of the Student Veterans of America.

  • Student Veterans of America (SVA) is a national coalition of military veterans in higher education.
  • SVA consists of 330+ member chapters on college campuses in 47 states in addition to DC.
  • The vision of SVA is to ensure yesterday’s warriors become today’s scholars and tomorrow’s leaders.

The Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Seven Seals Award was presented to SD Mines. The ESGR Seven Seals Award is presented to an individual or organization that has made significant contribution towards the ESGR mission. ESGR is a Department of Defense volunteer agency that seeks to promote a culture in which all American employers support and value the military service of their employees. ESGR recognizes outstanding support, increases awareness of the law, and resolves conflicts through informal mediation. This is the first time this award has been given to an organization.
