Oregon Tech’s Commitment to Veterans Lands it Again on 2015 “Military Friendly Schools” List

Sep 23, 2014
Oregon Tech has been designated a 2015 Military Friendly® School by Victory Media, the trusted source and leader in successfully connecting the military and civilian worlds for the benefit of veterans.
Oregon Institute of Technology (Oregon Tech) announced today that it has been designated a 2015 Military Friendly® School by Victory Media, the trusted source and leader in successfully connecting the military and civilian worlds for the benefit of veterans.
 
Now in its sixth year, the Military Friendly Schools designation provides service members transparent, data-driven ratings about post-military education and career opportunities.
 
“Oregon Tech is committed to providing veterans and military personnel with affordable and accessible options to begin or complete their academic careers,” said Oregon Tech President Dr. Chris Maples. “Because Oregon Tech was established to serve veterans after World War II, and as a veteran myself, I take special pride in knowing that our university holds the Military Friendly School designation. This title recognizes the special services we provide to our service men and women who often need more targeted transitional supports.”
 
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.
 
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.
