Madison, Wis. (January 7, 2016) – Edgewood College has been awarded the designation of a Top School in the 2016 Military Advanced Education & Transition Guide to Colleges & Universities, measuring best practices in military and veteran education. The Guide was released in late December and is available online at www.mae-kmi.com.
“Our goal is to be a dynamic resource for active service members and those who have moved from the military to their civilian careers, helping them find the school that best fits their plans for the future,” said Kelly Fodel, Editor at Military Advanced Education & Transition. “We think this year’s Guide is our most comprehensive to date.”
The Guide presents results of a questionnaire for the military-supportive policies enacted at more than 600 institutions including private, public, for-profit, not-for-profit, four-year, and two-year colleges. From community colleges to state universities, online universities and nationally known centers of higher learning, MAE&T’s 2016 Guide to Colleges & Universities arms students with information about institutions that go out of their way to give back to our men and women in uniform.
This year, institutions were evaluated on their military culture, financial aid, flexibility, general support, on-campus support and online support services. Each school’s performance rating by category is represented by an easy-to-recognize dashboard. This enables prospective students to quickly target schools that follow best practices, and then put these in context with other academic or career considerations.
“While we realize that all schools are unique, we focus our annual survey on the best practices that make a true difference to service members and student veterans,” said Fodel. “These best practices have been asserted by various higher education groups and reinforced by veteran groups, and we consider our survey to be the most detailed and informative in the industry.”
