National University, one of the country’s most trusted and respected military-friendly universities, affirms its commitment to the military business community
SAN DIEGO, CA (Aug. 15, 2023) — National University (NU), a highly regarded and trusted institution known for unwavering support of the U.S. armed forces and family members, is underscoring its commitment to helping the military business community thrive by sponsoring Rosie’s List and The Rosie Network.
With Veteran-founded roots and a student population of 40,000—one in four being an active-duty servicemember or Veteran—NU recognizes Rosie’s List as a vital platform and network that promotes businesses owned by military community members, connecting them with valuable online programs, resources, and mentorship that foster growth and success.
As a top 10% Military Friendly and Yellow Ribbon School, NU takes pride in sponsoring Rosie’s List because it closely aligns with the university’s empowerment of military-community entrepreneurs. This partnership encompasses the support of spouses, veterans, and transitioning servicemembers across all military branches nationwide.
Today’s military and Veteran learners are simultaneously balancing education and work, education and parenting, and education and deployment. NU’s innovative approach is centered around supporting the whole student, which includes financial, academic, emotional well-being, career, and family support.
“Partnering with the Rosie Network and sponsoring Rosie’s List enables us to further extend our support to the whole student,” expressed Meg O’Grady, National University’s senior vice president of military and government affairs. “While it’s important to provide students with credential-rich pathways, it’s just as critical to support those who are forging meaningful careers as entrepreneurs.”
The military community encompasses individuals from diverse backgrounds who are universally recognized for their entrepreneurial skills, leadership qualities, and resilience as business owners.
NU Military and Veteran Partnerships Manager and military spouse Danielle Maloy understands firsthand the immense contributions and strong work ethic found in members of the military community.
“NU is excited to collaborate with the Rosie Network and spread the word about Rosie’s List to expand and fortify our nationwide network of doers,” Maloy said. “This partnership directly benefits and positively impacts many programs and services that reflect NU’s commitment to lowering barriers and creating opportunities for military families through education and entrepreneurship.”
