Florida Atlantic University has earned the 2020-2021 Military Friendly® School “Gold Designation” for the first time, based on the expanding services and spaces offered by FAU’s Military and Veterans Student Success Center. This is the ninth 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.

"Florida Atlantic University and the Military and Veterans Student Success Center takes great pride in providing an exceptional education, veteran centric services and programs to our brave men, woman and supporting dependents,” said Michael Allison, director of FAU’s Military and Veterans Affairs.

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.
