Baker University constantly strives to provide veterans and their spouses with educational opportunities that fit their schedule and build on their experiences. Those efforts were recently acknowledged when Baker was named as a Top Military Friendly School for 2019-2020. This is the second year Baker has been recognized by Military Friendly Schools.
“At Baker University we are extremely pleased to be recognized for our devoted commitment to ensuring our military students have an outstanding educational experience,” said Dr. Sharon Zoellner, dean of the School of Education and School of Professional and Graduate Studies.
Now in its 10th year, the Military Friendly Schools list has come to set the standard for higher education institutions that provide the best opportunities for veterans and their spouses. This list, organized by VIQTORY, provides a comprehensive guide for veterans and their families using data sources from federal agencies and proprietary survey information from participating organizations.
Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by VIQTORY with input from the Military Friendly Advisory Council, made up of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining the institution’s survey scores with the assessment of the institution’s ability to meet thresholds for student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence (degree advancement or transfer), and loan default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.
