Annual presentation to faculty and staff members highlights R&D, philanthropy, athletics, and leadership in diversity and equity.
The University of Louisiana at Lafayette has been saluted for its dedication to helping military members and veterans achieve academic and career success.
UL Lafayette has earned a “silver” designation on the 2021-2022 “Military Friendly Schools” list compiled by Viqtory. The veteran-owned company provides information about post-military education and careers.
The list recognizes colleges and universities in one of several categories – Top Ten, gold, silver, bronze or military friendly.
Sammi Conner, UL Lafayette’s director of Veteran Services, said the recognition “is representative of our continual commitment to providing support and resources for veterans, active military members and their dependents.”
Viqtory compiles the “Military Friendly Schools” list based on research of publicly available data for more than 8,800 colleges and universities obtained from the U.S. departments of Education, Veterans Affairs, and Defense.
Feedback from student veterans and military members is weighed as well. Schools are also required to complete a data-driven survey. It considers factors such as on-campus military support, academic policies, admissions, tuition assistance and flexible course scheduling options.
More than 1,200 schools completed the survey; 747 of them made the cut as a 2020-2021 “Military Friendly School.”
The list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine.
