Serving Those Who Serve Us for 50 Years . . . and Still Going Strong
“Being recognized as the number one school in this prestigious poll is the result of a strong team effort by all of our departments to recognize the needs of our unique students, including active duty military, Veterans, and their dependents," says ECPI University Executive Director of Military Education Bob Larned. “We have been working with the military community for almost 50 years by assisting them in reaching their educational goals to enhance their careers. This recognition is extremely rewarding for all of us at ECPI University.”
Military Times’ annual Best for Vets: Colleges survey asks colleges and universities to meticulously document a tremendous array of services, special rules, accommodations, and financial incentives offered to students with military ties; and to describe many aspects of veteran culture on a campus.
Military Times also factors in data from the Veterans Affairs and Defense Departments, as well as three Education Department sources: the IPEDS Data Center, College Scorecard data and the Cohort Default Rate Database. “We award the Best for Vets designation to the very best – the colleges that really are setting the example,” says Amanda Miller, editor of Military Times’ Best for Vets rankings and special editions.
The rankings are published in full in the issues of Army Times, Navy Times, Air Force Times, and Marine Corps Times on newsstands the week of Nov. 9; and online at MilitaryTimes.com, as well as ArmyTimes.com, NavyTimes.com, AirForceTimes.com and MarineCorpsTimes.com.
