Military Friendly 2016For the seventh consecutive year, Park University has been honored by Victory Media as a 2016 Military Friendly School.

The military friendly designation by Victory Media, which publishes G.I. Jobs, STEM Jobs and Military Spouse magazines, provides service members and their families with transparent, data-driving ratings about post-military education and career opportunities. The honor is awarded to the top colleges, universities, community colleges and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace military students, and also dedicate resources to ensure their success in the classroom and after graduation.

Institutions named to the list of military friendly schools complete a survey of questions related to military support on campus, graduation and employment outcomes, and military spouse policies. Survey responses are then scored against benchmarks against these key indicators of success and 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.
