UIW Named to 2015 Military Friendly® Schools List
San Antonio – The University of the Incarnate Word (UIW) is proud to announce its designation as a 2015 Military Friendly® School by Victory Media, the leader in successfully connecting the military and civilian worlds.
Now in its sixth year, the Military Friendly® Schools designation and list by Victory Media is the premier, trusted resource for post-military success. Military Friendly® provides service members transparent, data-driven ratings about post-military education and career opportunities. The Military Friendly® Schools designation is awarded to the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace military students, and to dedicate 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.
“It is truly an honor to be named as a 2015 Military Friendly School!” said Dr. Cyndi Porter, VP, UIW Extended Academic Studies. “Continuing to be recognized for our dedication to military students is very important. It is the least we can do for those who do so much to ensure our freedoms.”
The survey captures over 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.
Dr. Cyndi Porter, VP of Extended Academic Programs, provides a tutorial for students using online tools including Blackboard and DegreeWorks.
