LACEY, Wash. – Saint Martin’s University announced today it has been selected by Victory Media as a 2015 Military Friendly® School.
The honor places the University in the top 15 percent of the nation’s military-friendly schools, which are recognized for doing the most to embrace military students and to dedicate resources to ensure their success in the classroom and after graduation.
Saint Martin’s first received the military-friendly designation in 2010.
“I am absolutely delighted that Saint Martin’s is once again recognized for its commitment to the military community,” says Radana Dvorak, who oversees the academic programs for military students in her role as dean of the Saint Martin’s Extended Learning Division. “Our faculty, staff, administration and abbey have a long history of serving Servicemembers, Veterans, and their families.”
The Military Friendly® Schools designation process includes extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 8,000 schools nationwide that are approved for Post-9/11 GI Bill funding. The survey, administered free of charge to the schools, captures over 50 leading practices in supporting military students.
The school survey, methodology, criteria and weightings are developed with the assistance of an independent Academic Advisory Board comprised of educators from schools across the country, and are independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP, based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media. Victory Media is a service-disabled, veteran-owned business serving the military community since 2001.
The data-driven lists are published in G.I. Jobs®, Military Spouse, and Vetrepreneur® media channels, republished in periodicals such as USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Fortune and Bloomberg BW, and are frequently cited on national TV by NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, CNBC, Fox News and others.
