February 22, 2019 / VU earns Top 10 Military Friendly Schools designation
VINCENNES, Ind. - Vincennes University has earned distinction
on the 2019-20 Top 10 Military Friendly Schools list produced by
VIQTORY, a veteran-owned business.
Now in its 10th year, the Military Friendly Schools list has
come to set the standard for higher education institutions to provide
the best opportunities for veterans and their spouses. This
prestigious list provides a comprehensive guide for veterans and their
families using data sources from federal agencies and proprietary
survey information from participating organizations.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly School designation
were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a
proprietary survey completed by the school. This year 766 schools
earned this prestigious designation. The 2019-2020 Military Friendly
Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine.
The list can also be found at www.militaryfriendly.com.
Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by
VIQTORY with input from the Military Friendly Advisory Council of
independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment
community. Final ratings were determined by combining the
institution’s survey scores with the assessment of the institution’s
ability to meet thresholds for student retention, graduation, job
placement, loan repayment, persistence (degree advancement or
transfer), and loan default rates for all students and, specifically,
for student veterans.
"To once again be included among the most military
friendly schools is a great honor. VU's more than three-decade
commitment to our active duty and veteran military personnel is
reflected by this recognition. We are proud of this achievement and we
are proud of the many VU faculty and staff who are responsible for
serving our military students," noted VU President Chuck Johnson.
