Regent Remains a Top Military Friendly School

| August 16, 2010

Regent University has once again been named to G.I. Jobs magazine's list of Military Friendly Schools. The list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools which are doing the most to embrace America's veterans as students.

"The Regent team has worked hard to welcome military service members, veterans and spouses into our university," says David Boisselle, Regent's director of military affairs. "We feel that these heroes are a perfect fit for our mission of Christian Leadership to Change the World for they are already on the front lines making us proud."

Criteria for making the Military Friendly Schools list included efforts to recruit and retain military and veteran students, results in recruiting military and veteran students, and academic accreditations. Schools on the list range from state universities and private colleges to community colleges and trade schools. The common bond is their shared priority of recruiting students with military experience.

"Regent University is grateful to be recognized for this honor; we are privileged to serve the educational needs of the great men and women who keep our country free," says Dr. Carlos Campo, Regent president.

The list was compiled through exhaustive research starting last April during which G.I. Jobs polled more than 7,000 schools nationwide. Methodology, criteria and weighting for the list were developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Board (AAB) consisting of educators from around the country.

G.I. Jobs is a veteran-owned business which also annually rates the nation's "Military Friendly Employers," "Military Spouse-Friendly Employers" and "Best Corporations for Veteran-Owned Businesses."
