Honor Marks 10 Continuous Years on Military Times Best for Vets List
Each year, Military Times ranks the best colleges and universities for veterans and military service members, and for the third consecutive year, ECPI University has been ranked number one in the nation in the Career and Technical College category. Military Times ranks schools based on the results of its annual survey, a comprehensive school-by-school assessment of veteran and military student services and rates of academic achievement.
An editorially independent news project, Best Colleges 2021 evaluates the many variables that determine academic success among military and veteran students. More than 300 schools participated in the latest Best for Vets: Colleges survey, which included more than 70 questions seeking details about the schools’ costs, programs, policies, and services that impact military-connected students. Federal data from the U.S. Departments of Education, Veterans Affairs, and Defense were also considered.
“Being selected #1 by Best for Veterans means so much because it shows the way we work with our military and veteran students and the programs that we have to support them are working and helping them to succeed,” says ECPI University Executive Director of Military Education Bill Brown. “We have so many great military and veteran students and the energy they bring to our campuses and classrooms is always evident; they add so much to our university.
“We trust our military and veterans to protect our nation and families and now they are trusting us to provide them the best education and support as they work towards earning a college degree. They have so many options and we work hard every day to create an environment that allows them to feel welcome so they can focus on their education and ultimately find a job in their intended field. This ranking is a reflection of our veteran students’ success. Their success is our success, and that is what pushes us every day to do all we can to help them reach their goals.”
Military Veteran Students and Graduates
Just like companies are judged by the value of their products or services, colleges and universities can best be judged by the quality of their graduates. By that measure, ECPI University’s family of military and veteran students and graduates represent people of great integrity and accomplishment. Each of them has a story. Here are just a few.
