UW-Stevens Point among best for military, veterans

The Univers
ity of Wisconsin-Stevens Point is among the best education institutions in the nation for military and veteran education, according to Military Advanced Education’s 2015 Guide to Colleges and Universities.

The guide evaluated more than 600 institutions from community colleges to state universities, evaluating the military culture, financial aid, flexibility, on-campus support and online support services. A dashboard guide of best practices in military education at each school is published in the December issue of Military Advanced Education as well as online at www.mae-kmi.com.

UW-Stevens Point was also recently recognized as a 2015 Military Friendly School® by G.I. Jobs for the fifth year in a row.

Approximately 300 veterans, National Guard members, reservists and military dependents are enrolled at UW-Stevens Point, said Ann Whipp, coordinator of Veterans Services. UW-Stevens Point’s faculty, staff and students demonstrate openness, care and concern for veterans’ academic and emotional health, helping them readjust to the civilian community and academic pursuits, she said.

“Being a ‘military friendly’ university is not only supportive of veterans, but it improves and enriches the campus community with increased knowledge and understanding for all,” Whipp said.
