Military Friendly School designation awarded to Purdue University Fort Wayne

FORT WAYNE — For the 11th year in a row, Purdue University Fort Wayne has been named a Military Friendly School by VIQTORY, publisher of G.I. Jobs magazine.

The Military Friendly designation is the measure of the commitment, effort, and success of an organization’s creation of sustainable and meaningful benefits for the military community. Earning Military Friendly status every year since 2010, Purdue Fort Wayne offers education and assistance with applications for benefits, changes in status or enrollment, referrals for tutoring, counseling, and help with issues involving financial aid, admissions, bursar, and other administrative units on campus.

“Consistently working to be a Military Friendly School continues to show the dedication our team has made to veterans, returning service members, and active duty personnel,” says Kristina Creager, vice chancellor for student affairs. “We have had some incredible staff members serve this population over the last decade and we are poised to continue to do so as we reimagine and strengthen our support to those most deserving of our efforts for decades to come.”

VIQTORY determines Military Friendly designations and awards through public data sources, student veterans, and responses to proprietary, data-driven surveys from participating institutions.
