CLC named to Victory Media’s 2016 Military Friendly Schools List

2016_MFS_LogoCentral Lakes College announced today that it has been designated a 2016 Military Friendly School by Victory Media, the leader in successfully connecting the military and civilian worlds, and publisher of G.I. Jobs, STEM Jobs and Military Spouse. Now in its seventh year, the original, premiere Military Friendly Schools designation provides service members and their families with transparent, data-driven ratings about post-military education and career opportunities.

“Central Lakes College is thrilled to be given this distinction again, as we pride ourselves on being a safe and welcoming place for veterans,” said Nick Heisserer, CLC’s Director of Enrollment Services.

Institutions competed for the elite Military Friendly School title be completing a survey of more than 100 questions covering 10 categories, including military support on campus, graduation and employment outcomes, and military spouse policies. Survey responses were scored against benchmarks across these key indicators of success. In addition, data was independently tested by Ernst & Young based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media, with guidance from an independent advisory board of higher education and recruiting professionals. A full list of board members can be found at militaryfriendly.com/advisory-board.

The Military Friendly Schools designation is awarded to top colleges, universities, community colleges and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace military students, and to dedicate resources to ensure their success both in the classroom and after graduation. The methodology used for making the Military Friendly Schools list has changed the student veteran landscape to one much more transparent, and has played a significant role over the past seven years in capturing and advancing best military practices to support military students across the country.
