Webster recongized as Best for Vets

Military Times has recognized Webster University for programs and service to veterans and active duty military.

Another publication has taken notice of Webster University’s programs and offerings for active duty military and veterans.

The Military Times named Webster University to its “2013 Best for Vets: Colleges” list, based on a survey of more than 650 schools. The survey recognizes schools’ efforts to accommodate veterans and active-duty service members.

Webster University and the U.S. Department of Defense have worked together for about 40 years to provide high quality and cost-effective undergraduate and graduate programs at military installations and other locations throughout the world.

Today, more than 6,000 of Webster’s 21,479 students are military-related students.

    First, let me say that we have done well to make this list, and it’s good recognition. The Military Times is wide distributed and read.

    I looked at the article and the list of schools. We are #38 out of 68 4-year schools listed as “Best for Vets.” Obviously, we are doing some things right to achieve this, but the details in the rankings suggest that we could do better.

    I take note in particular that we are not part of the Veterans Upward Bound program, which provides support to help vets prepare academically for college life. There are a couple of other tuition aid programs in which we do not participate.

    We are rated high on “veterans office” (I’m not sure what that means here.), but low on “academic support staff.”

    Now there may be good reasons for this. For example, we do not relax residency requirements, and that makes sense, given how minimal our residency requirement already is.

    Again — we should be proud to be included in this list; it indicates we are responding to veterans needs. I wonder if we are doing all we can on tuition aid and support for veterans who need academic support to be successful.

      Good thoughts. I agree that with a few strategic programing additions Webster could be much higher in the rankings. The Upward Bound project for Veterans would be a great addition to Webster programs.
