Victory Media has named Sherman College of Chiropractic to the coveted Military Friendly Schools list, a designation given 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.
Victory Media is the leader in successfully connecting the military and civilian worlds.
This is the college’s third consecutive year receiving the Military Friendly designation.
A U.S. Navy veteran, Sherman College President Edwin Cordero, DC, said the Military Friendly Schools designation has special meaning to him. “Sherman College has a tremendous opportunity to serve and honor our military service members who give so much to our country,” Cordero said. “We are eager to reach more military members and share with them a health care career that embraces their commitment to serving others. I think it is especially fitting, since Sherman College of Chiropractic holds service to others as a major component of its mission.”
Inclusion on the list of Military Friendly Schools shows a commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students, according to Victory Media. The need for education is growing, and Victory Media’s mission is to provide the military community with world-class resources to assist in their search for schools.
Now in its seventh year, the original, premier Military Friendly Schools designation provides service members and their families with transparent, data-driven ratings about post-military education and career opportunities.
“Post-secondary institutions earning the 2016 Military Friendly School award have exceptionally strong programs for transitioning service members and spouses,” said Daniel Nichols, chief product officer of Victory Media and Navy Reserve veteran. “Our Military Friendly Schools are truly aligning their military programs and services with employers to help students translate military experience, skills, and training into successful careers after graduation.”
Institutions competed for the elite Military Friendly School title by completing a survey of over 100 questions covering ten categories, including military support on campus, graduation and employment outcomes, and military spouse policies.
Survey responses were scored against benchmarks across these key indicators of success. In addition, data was independently tested by Ernst & Young based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media with guidance from an independent Advisory Board of higher education and recruiting professionals.
