Brandman University designated Military Friendly School for 2016
For the sixth consecutive year, Brandman University has been designated a 2016 Military Friendly® School by Victory Media, the leader in successfully connecting the military and civilian worlds. Now in its 13th year for companies and seventh year for post-secondary schools, Victory Media’s Military Friendly® ratings recognize colleges and companies with leading programs for veterans, members of the Armed Forces leaving military service and military spouses.
“With nearly a quarter of our student population identifying as active duty military, veterans or their spouses, it becomes vital that we do our part to support these students and provide them with the education and services they deserve,” said Brandman University Chancellor Gary Brahm.
The Military Friendly® Schools designation is awarded to the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country doing the most to embrace military students dedicating resources to ensure their success in the classroom and after graduation. The methodology used for making the Military Friendly® Schools list has changed the student veteran landscape to one much more transparent and has played a significant role over the past six years in capturing and advancing best practices to support military students across the country.
The survey captures more than 50 leading practices in supporting military students and is available free of charge to the more than 8,000 schools approved for Post-9/11 GI Bill funding. As in past years, the 2015 Military Friendly® Schools results were independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology developed by Victory Media with input by its independent Academic Advisory Board.
“We live in an era when the value of military service in the professional world is unquestioned and unmatched,” said Chris Hale, a Navy veteran and chairman and co-founder of Victory Media. “Veterans are graduates of the premier training institution in the world, but they need a consistent and predictable standard that lets them make good choices for major life decisions such as where to work or where to enroll in school. The mission of Military Friendly® is to create maximum professional opportunities for them and other members of the military community.”
This year nearly 400,000 active duty, National Guard and Armed Forces Reserve service members will make us of their skills at campuses and companies nationwide.
