Western Earns 'Military Friendly' School Designation for 2020-2021

Western Washington University has earned the 2020-2021 Military Friendly school designation from militaryfriendly.com’s annual higher education ranking and survey.

Military Friendly investigates and identifies organizations committed to serving the military and veteran community through efforts that are comprehensive in scope and meaningful in terms of actual outcomes and impact.

Western, like all the institutions given this designation, has demonstrated commitment, effort, and success to create meaningful opportunities for veterans to translate military skills to civilian ones through education. These institutions provide support for transitioning veterans, and flexibility to military spouses, reserve and guard members who move often or deploy.

“When someone transitions from the military service, checking to see just how welcoming a school is to veterans can be the first thing a potential student looks into,” said Western’s Director of Veteran Services, Nick Sanchez. “Western being designated as a Military Friendly school is an important initial indicator for these services’ members and veterans.”
