February 27, 2020 / Vincennes University ranked among top Military Friendly universities

VINCENNES, Ind.— Vincennes University has been named a Military Friendly School for 2020-2021 for its support to service members, veterans, and their families by VIQTORY, an organization connecting the military community to educational opportunities.

Since 1987, Vincennes University has awarded over 8,500 degrees to service members and veterans across the country through the Military Education Program. VU offers courses and advising services at 11 military locations in Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Nevada, Virginia, and Washington.

Evaluation for institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation used both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey completed by the school. More than 1,000 schools participated in the 2020-2021 survey, with 625 schools earning the designation from every state in the country.

"To once again be included among the most military-friendly schools is a great honor. VU's official commitment since 1986 to our active duty and veteran military personnel reflects this recognition. We are proud of the many military students VU works with from coast to coast, and the VU employees who serve them daily," noted VU President Chuck Johnson.
