Florida Atlantic University has earned the 2018 Military Friendly® School Designation by Victory Media, a veteran-owned business dedicated to helping service members and veterans transition into civilian careers. 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 appreciates the sacrifices that military and veterans have made to defend our freedoms and way of life,” said Andrea Guzman Oliver, Ed.D., associate vice president for student outreach and diversity. “Military and veteran students are an integral part of the diverse fabric that makes up our student body, and we are committed to offering exceptional services and holistic programming to enhance their success.”

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.
