National University Named "Military Friendly School"
National University has once again been selected by G.I. Jobs magazine as a “Military Friendly School for 2012.” The honor places National University in the top 15 percent of all schools nationwide.
This is the third year in a row that National University has been honored for its commitment to the military. Previously, G.I. Jobs magazine and Military Advanced Education magazine have both ranked National University among its “Military Friendly Schools” and one of “America’s Top Military Friendly Colleges and Universities.”
“National University is proud of its commitment to serving the needs of students from all branches of the military, and we are honored to be named a military friendly school,” said Vernon Taylor, Associate Vice President of Military and Veterans Affairs Programs at National University. “National University believes in providing military students with the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in their careers in both the military and the private sector.”
National University enjoys a distinguished reputation for its commitment to military education. It is a past winner of the prestigious Ray Ehrensberger Award for Institutional Excellence in Military Education. Doug Barr, Associate Regional Dean of Military Students, and Richard Carter, Vice Chancellor of Business Operations, are both past recipients of the William Kennedy Award by the Council of Colleges and Military Educators for outstanding service in military education. Taylor is a past recipient of the John Brian Service and Leadership Award (2007) and the Tilton Davis Jr. “Military Educator of the Year” Award (2010).
