Schaumburg, Ill. Sept. 29, 2014 – For the sixth year in a row, American InterContinental UniversityTM (AIU) has been named one of the country’s Military Friendly® Schools for its ongoing commitment to providing military students and their families the opportunities and support they need to achieve their educational goals. The recognition comes from Victory Media, originator of the Military Friendly® group of education and career resources for veterans and their families, and the ratings and resources are designed to provide servicemembers transparent and accurate information to help them make decisions about their educational opportunities.
“AIU feels honored to serve so many military and veteran students, and we are committed to supporting the unique needs that many military students and their families have as they pursue their postsecondary education goals,” said Dr. George Miller, president of AIU. “Being named to the Military Friendly® Schools list for six years in a row is a testament to our dedication to providing educational programs and an environment that welcomes these students and partners with them along their educational journey.”
The 2015 Military Friendly® list recognizes the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military servicemembers, veterans and spouses as students. Developed through more than a decade of proprietary research, the list is derived mathematically from survey submissions that include responses to more than 100 questions that define what it takes to successfully attract and support the military community. This includes such things as offering programs especially in demand by military and veteran students and having robust distance-learning options.
A Reputation for Military and Veteran Support
AIU provides a unique learning environment with opportunities tailored to the needs of military students, veterans and their families and has received additional recognition on the Military Times Edge “Best for Vets” list and from Military Advanced Education magazine.
Over the years, AIU has developed a range of initiatives to improve our service to those who serve our country and their families, including:
“We take special measures to equip faculty and staff to welcome, accommodate and support the thousands of military personnel and veterans who choose AIU,” said Dr. Miller. “Understanding the sacrifices our military and veteran students have made to protect our nation, AIU aims to do its part to honor this service by helping these students take the next steps in pursuing postsecondary education.”
