CLEVELAND — Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) has earned its 10th consecutive Military Friendly® School designation in recognition of its commitment to serving veterans and active military students, as well as their families.
Tri-C received the honor from Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs and other publications serving the military community. The College was designated as a Top 10 school for the third consecutive year.
“Tri-C is dedicated to serving those who served this nation,” said Rick DeChant, executive director of the College’s Veterans Initiative. “We view the College as a ‘home base’ for the veterans and military families of Northeast Ohio.”
Victory Media created the Military Friendly School designation in 2009 to help service members and their families select the best college, university or trade school to receive the education and training needed to pursue a civilian career.
Institutions earning the designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a Victory Media survey. The review covered more than 8,800 schools; only 766 received a Military Friendly designation.
Tri-C works with thousands of military families a year through its veteran services centers, which offer a full array of support services to help veterans reach educational and career goals as they transition from soldiers to civilians.
Centers are located at Eastern Campus in Highland Hills, Metropolitan Campus in Cleveland, Western Campus in Parma, Westshore Campus in Westlake, Brunswick University Center and the Louis Stokes VA Medical Center in Cleveland.
