The University of New Haven, for a sixth consecutive year, is ranked as one of the “Best for Vets” by Military Times magazine.
The 2016 rankings factor in the results of Military Times’ annual survey, which it claims is the most comprehensive school-by-school assessment of veteran and military student services and rates of academic achievement.
“We are pleased to be included in this ranking as the University of New Haven focuses on accommodating individuals who have worked so hard to serve our nation,” said Sean-Michael Green, an associate vice president at the University and a former Marine. “Our veterans and service members deserve the best education and experience, and that is what we strive to offer them at UNH.”
Best for Vets: Colleges 2016 is an editorially independent news project that evaluates the many factors that help make colleges and universities a good fit for service members, military veterans and their families. More than 600 colleges took part in this year’s detailed survey.
“It’s been amazing to witness how colleges all across higher education have embraced service members and their families,” said Amanda Miller, editor of Military Times’ Best for Vets rankings and special editions. “Over the past six years of our surveys, we’ve seen so many schools first begin to foster – through new policies, services and dedicated facilities – and then nurture these wonderful communities.”
Military Times’ annual Best for Vets: Colleges survey asks colleges and universities to document services, special rules, accommodations and financial incentives offered to students with military ties; and to describe many aspects of veteran culture on a campus. Military Times also factors in data from the Veterans Affairs and Defense Departments, as well as three Education Department sources: the IPEDS Data Center, College Scorecard data and the Cohort Default Rate Database.
“We award the Best for Vets designation to the very best – the colleges that really are setting the example,” Miller said.
