Military Friendly Top 10Park University’s recognition and respect for the contributions military personnel make to the country, as well as the University’s long history of serving those who serve our country, has been recognized by Victory Media.

Park University has been honored by the publishing company with a “Top 10 Gold Military Friendly School Award.” Park is ranked No. 5 in the private, large schools (more than 10,000 students) category, and is one of four Missouri-based schools in the top 8 in the category.

New this year, Victory Media’s Military Friendly Awards showcase the most powerful and effective programs of more than 200 companies and 1,200 post-secondary schools that were designated as Military Friendly in November. Park received the designation for the eighth straight year. Of those designated, just a handful of schools were recognized for excellence in different categories, highlighting not only “Are you military friendly?” but “How military friendly are you?”

“All of the Military Friendly Award recipients set the standard for excellence,” said Daniel Nichols, chief product officer of Victory Media (publisher of G.I. Jobs, STEM Jobs and Military Spouse magazines). “They 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.”

The newest Victory Media recognition is the third military-related honor Park University has received in recent months. Also in November, Park was selected as the No. 4 “Best for Vets” private college/university in the country by Military Times. The ranking is a reflection of the services and support the University provides to active duty military, veterans and their families.
