FAYETTEVILLE, NC – September 23, 2014 – Fayetteville Technical Community College announced today that it has been designated (a recognition for the past six years) a 2015 Military Friendly® School by Victory Media, the leader in successfully connecting the military and civilan worlds. Now in its sixth year, the Military Friendly® Schools designation and list by Victory Media is the premier, trusted resource for post-military success. Military Friendly® provides service members transparent, data-driven ratings about post-military education and career opportunities.
The Military Friendly® Schools designation is awarded to the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace military students and to dedicate resources to ensure their success in the classroom and after graduation. The methodology used for making the Military Friendly® Schools lists has changed the student veteran landscape to one much more transparent and has played a significant role over the past six years in capturing and advancing best practices to support military students across the country.
The Military Friendly® Schools designation process includes extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 8,000 schools nationwide approved for Post-9/11 GI Bill funding. The school survey, methodology, criteria and weightings are developed with the assistance of an independent Academic Advisory Board comprised of educators from schools across the country.
Victory Media is a service-disabled, veteran-owned business serving the military community since 2001. Their data-driven lists are published in G.I. Jobs®, Military Spouse, and Vetrepreneur® media channels, republished in periodicals such as USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Fortune, Bloomberg BW, and frequently cited on national TV by NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, CNBC, Fox News and others.
