Park University Designated Military Friendly School by Viqtory

Military Friendly 2022-23Park University has been designated as a Military Friendly School for 2022-23 by Viqtory. In fact, the University earned a Top 10 Award, ranking No. 6 in the “Private, Not Offering Doctorate” category.

The 2022-23 Military Friendly Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and can be found at militaryfriendly.com/schools.

Methodology, criteria and weightings were determined by Viqtory with input from the Military Friendly Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining the institution’s survey scores with the assessment of the institution’s ability to meet thresholds for student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence (degree advancement or transfer) and loan default rates for all students, including student veterans.

Park University takes pride in a relationship with the U.S. military that dates back to its earliest days. One of the “Original Seventeen” students, Rev. Thomas Dodd Roberts, was a Civil War veteran who began his Park studies at the age of 31. Throughout its history, Park students and graduates have bravely defended our nation, and two graduates — George S. Robb and Lewis Millett — have earned the Medal of Honor.

Park stands committed to expanding services for its military and veteran student population, including a new tool that will give students insight into how their skillsets translate into civilian career paths, along with data-driven recommendations for education and training options to support their transition into high-growth industries. This new release coincides with the 60th anniversary of establishing degree completion programs for military students, which 50 years ago extended to military installations across the country.

The Park Global Warrior Center, originally established to assist students returning from service in Afghanistan and Iraq, today coordinates Park’s efforts to better provide military-affiliated students and their families with information about their educational benefits, work with students being deployed or returning from a tour of duty, and provide references and other assistance to veterans. In its new home on the first floor of the Robert W. Plaster Free Enterprise Center, the PGWC will better serve students all across the Park network.
