Niagara University's commitment to embracing America's military service members as students has been recognized once again, this time via inclusion on U.S. Veterans Magazine's list of "Top Veteran-Friendly Schools."
The results were released June 4 as part of the magazine's annual evaluation of the nation's employers, initiatives, government agencies and educational institutions.
Lists were compiled from market research, independent research, diversity conference participation and survey responses of Fortune 1000 companies that were performed by DiversityComm, publisher of U.S. Veterans Magazine. The "Best of the Best" rankings will appear in the magazine's summer issue.
Of the 159 colleges and universities honored this year, only four are based in Western New York.
Niagara University has recently been recognized by U.S. News and World Report as one of the region's "Best Colleges for Veterans," designated a "2015 Military Friendly School" by Victory Media, and a "Best for Vets: Colleges" by Military Times.
"We are proud to be recognized by so many entities for assisting the brave men and women transitioning from military service, yet our impetus for providing these resources truly stems from a university-wide commitment to acknowledging their sacrifices for our country," noted Robert Healy, Niagara University's veterans services coordinator and retired Air Force veteran.
