BROOMFIELD, Colo.--(Redstone College, a Denver-based institution of higher learning, was named to the coveted Military Friendly Schools list by Victory Media, the premier media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life. The 2013 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.)--
“Inclusion on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools shows Redstone’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students”
“It is very fitting and satisfying to have Redstone College named to this list,” said Tim Guerrero, Campus Academic Dean of Redstone College. “With approximately 30 percent of our student population being veterans at any given time, and more than half our staff having served in the military, we know how important it is to provide the best training possible to some of the men and women who have served all of us so well and are eager to get into the workforce.”
“Inclusion on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools shows Redstone’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, Director for G.I. Jobs and Vice President at Victory Media. “As interest in education grows, we’re thrilled to provide the military community with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for schools.”
The Military Friendly Schools media and website, found at www.militaryfriendlyschools.com, feature the list, interactive tools and search functionality to help military students find the best school to suit their individual needs and preferences. The 1,739 colleges, universities and trade schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience.
Now in its fourth year, the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 schools nationwide that have been approved by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The survey tabulation process, methodology and weightings that comprise the 2013 list were independently verified by Ernst & Young. Each year schools taking the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Board (AAB) consisting of educators from schools across the country.
A full story and detailed list of 2013 Military Friendly Schools will be highlighted in the annual G.I. Jobs Guide to Military Friendly Schools, distributed in print and digital format to hundreds of thousands of active and former military personnel in early October. The Guide and associated media will also be featured at the Carrier Classic college basketball game on Nov. 9, between Ohio State and Marquette on the deck of the USS Yorktown. Both participating schools are on this year’s list of Military Friendly Schools.
