DANIELSON — Quinebaug Valley Community College has been designated a 2016 Military Friendly® School by Victory Media, the leader in successfully connecting the military and civilian worlds.
Now in its seventh year, the designation provides service members and their families with transparent data- driven ratings about post-military education and career opportunities. In addition, QVCC was ranked the #2 military friendly community college in the country in the newly created Top 25 ranking of schools by type.
Institutions competed for the elite Military Friendly® School title by completing a survey of over 100 questions on topics such as military support on campus, graduation and employment outcomes, and military spouse policies. The designation is awarded to the top colleges, universities, community colleges and trade school in the country that are doing the most to embrace military students and dedicate resources to ensure their success both in the classroom and after graduation.
According to Pam Brown, director of transition services and VA certifying official at QVCC, there are about
90 service members or veterans enrolled this fall, with over half receiving GI Bill or other educational benefits from the VA. “I think the overall QVCC experience is still very student focused, which is important to veterans,” said Brown. “The College is always willing to support veteran projects such as the recent photo exhibit, the veterans’ garden, the veterans’ OASIS, GI Guardians, and Veterans Day activities. We encourage an atmosphere where our veterans are respected, appreciated, and engaged with the school and each other.”
“QVCC could not be more proud to receive this honor,” stated President Carlee Drummer. “And we are even more proud to provide support to our veteran students who have served so tirelessly to protect the freedoms we all enjoy.”
QVCC will be showcased along with other 2016 Military Friendly® School in the annual Guide to Military Friendly® Schools, special education issues of G.I. Jobs® and Military Spouse Magazine, and on MilitaryFriendly.com
