Institutions that have achieved the Military-Friendly School designation were assessed using public data sources and proprietary survey responses. More than 1,200 schools participated in the 2021-2022 survey and 747 achieved the designation, according to information provided by Middlesex College.

Michael Barany, coordinator of the Middlesex College Veterans Center, said he was proud of the designation, which the college has repeatedly won, and that he was grateful for the generous support of the Willard TC Johnson Foundation, which funded the center since its inception. in 2012, according to the press release.
“The foundation has allowed us to make a huge difference in the lives of these men and women,” he said in the statement. “I am so proud of them and their success.
Barany highlighted several initiatives of the center.
“The first is the formal training we give to faculty and staff that allows them to understand what our military-affiliated students have gone through,” he said in the statement. “We also offer academic counseling, tutoring and we have a VetsSuccess advisor on campus. All of this helps our students be successful and also alleviates stress when planning for their future. “
Another benefit is the Veterans and Servicemembers Association, a student organization that develops extracurricular activities for veterans and promotes community service opportunities, the statement said. In the past, the group has visited veterans at local nursing homes and participated in Operation Shoebox, in which they packed food and hygiene items that were delivered to the troops abroad.
Kayla Lopez, national director of military partnerships for the Military Friendly program, said schools that achieve this designation have much to be proud of.
“Military Friendly is committed to being transparent and providing consistent, data-driven standards in our designation process,” she said in the statement. “It creates an atmosphere of competition that encourages colleges to constantly evolve and invest in their programs. Schools that achieve the designation demonstrate genuine commitment and dedication in their efforts. Our standards help schools by providing a benchmark that promotes positive academic outcomes, resources and support services that enhance the educational landscape and provide opportunities for the military community.
