QVCC Named a Gold Military Friendly School for 2018-2019

Military Friendly School LogoQuinebaug Valley Community College announced that it has been designated a 2018-2019 GOLD Military Friendly School by Victory Media, a veteran-owned business that benchmarks and rates colleges and companies to help veterans and military families make well-informed decisions about employment, education, and entrepreneurship opportunities.

Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. For the first time, student survey data was taken into consideration for the designation. This is the 9th consecutive year the college has received recognition as an institution that is “Better for Veterans” – those with programs and policies that lead to positive outcomes.

The Military Friendly designation includes special awards for those colleges and training facilities that set the standard for excellence. These schools offer exceptional examples of what it means not just to build a program that meets federal requirements, but one that serves the military and veteran community from classrooms to careers.

QVCC takes pride in offering veterans and service members a strong support system, including assistance with military educational benefits packages, advising, registration and certification services in a one stop fashion. The dedicated Veterans Oasis, Veterans Advisory Committee, Veterans Day celebration, and Veterans Garden are some of the ways QVCC supports its veterans.

On Saturday, June 9, a Veterans Stand Down will be held for the third year at the Danielson campus. Sponsored jointly by QVCC and the Danielson Veterans Coffee House, the event is designed to give former service members living in northeast Connecticut assistance with benefits information.
