Florida Atlantic University has earned the 2021-2022 Military Friendly® School “Gold Designation” for the second time, based on the expansion of services and spaces offered by FAU’s Military and Veterans Student Success Center

This is the 10th consecutive year FAU has appeared on the Military Friendly School® list. The Military Friendly School® designation recognizes institutions that have met minimum thresholds for student retention, graduation, job placement and loan repayment rates for student veterans. 

“FAU takes great pride in providing exceptional services, programs and most importantly an education to our brave military and veterans students and dependents,” said Michael Allison, director of FAU’s Military and Veterans Affairs. “We are honored to receive this recognition for the 10th year, especially during this tumultuous time of going through the COVID-19 pandemic as an institution.”

FAU’s Office of Military and Veterans Affairs currently serves more than 1,500 military and veteran students, which includes dependents eligible for military and veteran educational benefits.

FAU’s Military and Veterans Student Success Center also serves as a hub for military and veteran student engagement by offering resources such as peer mentoring, internship and employment opportunities, networking events, an entrepreneurship program, outdoor expeditions, and social gatherings.
