Military Times Awards Oregon Tech Military Friendly Schools® Title
Sept. 18, 2013, Klamath Falls, ORE. – Oregon Institute of Technology was named to the Military Friendly Schools® list this week. The Military Friendly Schools designation is awarded to the top 20 percent of colleges, universities, and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace military students and ensure their success in the classroom and after graduation.
“Our survey and data-driven Military Friendly Schools® list stand out as one of the primary drivers for leading practices captured within the administration’s ‘8 Keys to Success’ prior to its inception,” said Sean Collins, Director for G.I. Jobs magazine and Vice President at Victory Media.
The 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through extensive research and a free, data-driven, survey of more than 10,000 VA-approved schools nationwide. This year’s list criteria also incorporate a survey of over 4,000 actual student veterans. This feedback provides prospective military students with insight into the student veteran experience at particular institutions based on peer reviews from current students. 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 unique needs and preferences.
“We are very pleased to be included in the Military Friendly Schools list once again. Oregon Tech’s history is steeped in our military-oriented beginning and the strong relationship we keep with active-duty members and veterans who attend our university,” said Oregon Tech President, Dr. Chris Maples.
The survey results that comprise the 2014 list were independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media. 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. Complete survey methodology is available at www.militaryfriendly.com/methodology/schools.
