Cabrini University has been designated as a 2020–2021 Military Friendly® School.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. More than 1,000 schools participated in the 2020-2021 survey, with 695 earning the designation.
“The Military Friendly® designation validates our efforts to make veterans feel welcome at Cabrini,” said Charlie Spencer (’00, MS’03), Cabrini’s Director of International and Military Recruitment and International Student Advisor. “Through our customer-service focus, we strive to ensure that military students easily find the support and resources they need to successfully further their studies here.”
Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Viqtory with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council 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.
Spencer encourages veterans to apply for full- or part-time admission to the University, which offers one-on-one academic advising, small classes and career-planning resources. Cabrini participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program for veterans who qualify for full tuition under the GI Bill (Chapter 33).
“Military students find Cabrini’s Education of the Heart, with its focus on the core values of respect, vision, community, and dedication to excellence, particularly meaningful,” he added.
The 2020–2021 Military Friendly® Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and can be found at www.militaryfriendly.com.
Military Friendly’s National Director Josh Rosen stated, “Our ability to apply a clear, consistent standard to colleges creates a competitive atmosphere that encourages colleges to invest in programs to provide educational outcomes that are better for the Military Community as a whole.”
