A national publication targeting military members and their spouses has named Troy University to its “military friendly list.”
“G.I. Jobs” ranked TROY in the top 15 percent of colleges and universities that are doing the most to embrace veterans as students.
“It’s wonderful to hear of TROY’s selection as a ‘military friendly’ school,” said Dr. Earl Ingram, vice chancellor of Global Campus, the division of the University that oversees TROY’s out-of-state locations and its eCampus at no taxpayers’ expense.
“This distinction affirms the hard work of hundreds of TROY’s faculty members and student services staff who do their best every day of the week to serve America’s military service members and their families wherever they are assigned around the world,” he said.
Earlier this year, TROY became one of the first universities in Alabama to announce its participation in the Yellow Ribbon Campaign, the Post-9/11 GI Bill that has given veterans greater financial means to earn bachelor’s or master’s degrees.
The list was compiled by “G.I. Jobs” through a more than year-long research project that polled more than 7,000 schools nationwide.
Methodology, criteria and weighting for the list were developed with the assistance of an academic advisory committee consisting of educators and administrators from Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Toledo, Duquense University, Coastline Community College and Lincoln Technical Institute.
