Indiana Tech recognized as a Military Friendly® universityMay 16, 2020
Indiana Tech has been designated a Military Friendly® School for 2020-21 by Viqtory, a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB) that connects the military community to civilian employment, educational and entrepreneurial opportunities. Military Friendly® is the standard that measures an organization’s commitment, effort and success in creating sustainable and meaningful benefit for the military community.
This year, Indiana Tech was recognized as a Top 10-Gold Level institution—the highest level ever achieved by the university. According to Viqtory, a Top 10-Gold Level designation indicates Indiana Tech is a “guidon bearer for military/veterans programs and initiatives,” and sets standards for other institutions to follow. Indiana Tech has been recognized as a Military Friendly® School for nine straight years.
“Indiana Tech has a long-standing tradition of connecting those who have served our country with tools and resources that will help them move forward in their careers,” said Director of Indiana Tech Military & Veteran Services Ryan Ozbun. “The outstanding professionals in my department take great pride in upholding this tradition and knowing the ins and outs of military education benefits so that our clients get the quality service they deserve.”
Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Viqtory with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining the institution’s survey scores with the assessment of the institution’s ability to meet thresholds for student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence and loan default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.
