Community College of Denver Named Military Friendly School
The Military Friendly Schools designation is awarded to the top colleges, universities, community colleges and trade schools in the country that do the most to embrace military students, and to dedicate resources to ensure their success both in the classroom and after graduation.
“CCD is proud to be named again as a Military Friendly School,” said Everette Freeman, CCD President. “We currently have over 400 veteran students attending CCD and we are proud to serve and honor our veterans.”
Institutions competed for the elite Military Friendly® School title by completing a survey of over 100 questions covering ten categories, including military support on campus, graduation and employment outcomes, and military spouse policies. Survey responses were scored against benchmarks across these key indicators of success. In addition, data was independently tested by EY (Ernst & Young) based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media with guidance from an independent Advisory Board of higher MilitaryFriendly.com/advisory-board.
“Post-secondary institutions earning the 2016 Military Friendly School award have exceptionally strong programs for transitioning service members and spouses,” said Daniel Nichols, Chief Product Officer of Victory Media and a Navy Reserve veteran. “Our Military Friendly Schools are truly aligning their military programs and services with employers to help students translate military experience, skills and training into successful careers after graduation.”
CCD will be showcased along with other 2016 Military Friendly® Schools in the annual Guide to Military Friendly® Schools, special education issues of G.I. Jobs® and Military Spouse Magazine, and on MilitaryFriendly.com.
