Pittsburg State University has once again been named a Military Friendly School by Victory Media, Inc. The award recognizes “the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus,” according to the company.
“Inclusion on the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools shows Pittsburg State University’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, director for “G.I. Jobs” and vice president at Victory Media.
In selecting universities for their Military Friendly list, Victory Media considers practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience, programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility, and other services for veterans.
Bill Ivy, associate vice president for enrollment management and student success, said the award reflects the university’s longstanding support for veterans.
“Throughout its history, Pittsburg State University has worked to support and provide opportunity for our nation’s veterans and their families,” Ivy said. “We’re pleased to see that dedication recognized in this way.”
