CCC Named ‘Military Friendly School’ for Fourth Year

 Clackamas Community College has been named a “Military Friendly School for 2013” by GI Jobs magazine. The list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools nationally serving military veterans and their families. 

 Schools included on the list range from state universities and private colleges to community colleges and trade schools. The common bond is their shared priority of recruiting students with military experience.

Now in its fourth year, the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 Veterans Affairs-approved schools nationwide. Schools on the list are those that offer targeted benefits for veterans including on-campus veterans’ programs, credit for service, and services for military spouses and families. The criteria also included efforts to recruit and retain military and veteran students. Clackamas has been a part of the Military Friendly Schools every year since its inception.

This year’s Military Friendly Schools list criteria incorporate a survey of over 3,000 actual student veterans. This feedback provides prospective military students with insight into the student veteran experience at particular institutions based on peer reviews from current students. The survey results that comprise the 2013 list were independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP.

CCC has made serving veterans and their families a priority over the past few years. The college received two grants aimed at serving vets, one from the American Council on Education (ACE) and the Wal-Mart Foundation, and a $381,000 congressional award to increase efforts to serve veterans, in particular around reintegration efforts as military returns from overseas deployment.

In February, CCC was named the 2012 Family Program Community Purple Award winner by the National Guard Bureau. This national award is given to one community group or organization from across the country each year that provides support to family and service members of both the Air and Army National Guard.
