University Awarded ‘Military Friendly’ Honors by G.I. Jobs
The honor follows a range of ‘military friendly’ accolades earned by Roger Williams in recent years
G.I. Jobs, the premier magazine for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has awarded Roger Williams University the designation of Military Friendly School. The magazine’s 2012 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members and veterans as students.
The honor is based on a 20-year RWU track record of creating and maintaining partnerships with education offices throughout the military branches. The University offers everything from major benefits (tuition discounts, flexible program formats, credit for experience) to personal touches such as one-on-one advising and faculty who offer the flexibility that members of the military value.
The designation by G.I. Jobs adds to a growing number of “military friendly” honors the University has earned in recent years. Last year alone, Roger Williams earned accolades as one of 101 Top Military Friendly Schools serving veterans by Military Times EDGE magazine. RWU also made the Military Advanced Education list of top military friendly schools for the third consecutive year.
