Clark College again recognized as military-friendly school

Clark College has been named to the 2013 Military Friendly Schools list, which honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities, and trade schools that “are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.” It is the third consecutive year that Clark College has received this honor. The college serves more than 700 veterans each year. The nomination noted that Clark College has an office with a full-time certifying official and that many faculty and staff, including President Robert Knight, have served in the military.

Now in its fourth year, the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 VA-approved schools nationwide. 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 of educators from schools across the country.

A full story and detailed list of 2013 Military Friendly Schools will be highlighted in the annual G.I. Jobs Guide to Military Friendly Schools, distributed next month to hundreds of thousands of active and former military personnel. G.I. Jobs is the premier magazine for military personnel transitioning into civilian life.
