On Thursday, December 8, Military Friendly® a division of Victory Media, released its annual rankings of United States schools and employers. Regent University was named a Top 10 Large Private School, recognized for outstanding commitment and programs for veterans and their families.
This distinction comes shortly after Military Times included Regent on its 2017 “Best for Vets” in the Online & Nontraditional Schools category for the second year running in November 2016.
“We’ve always been the university that’s been military focused, but now it’s getting its due,” said assistant director of Regent’s Office of Military & Veteran’s Affairs José Roman. “It’s being recognized amongst other schools as the place to go, the first-choice for our military population here in Hampton Roads.”
In 2016, Regent launched several new initiatives to continue the growing trend of “military friendliness” on campus, including the Military Resource Center (MRC).
The MRC gives military service people, veterans and their families an on-campus resource to learn about their benefits and support opportunities available from Regent faculty and staff members.
“We’re able to do what we do here and go above and beyond because of the great people that we have,” said Roman. “It’s all a part of our mission; and the values of being excellent, innovative, and developing leaders matches up with those military values. This is just another way that we serve our community and that’s why it’s important to us.”
