GGC selected as a top school in Military Advanced Education’s 2015 Guide to Colleges & Universities
Georgia Gwinnett College has been awarded the designation of a Top School in Military Advanced Education’s (MAE) 2015 Guide to Colleges & Universities, measuring best practices in military and veteran education. The guide was released in the December issue of MAE, and is available online at www.mae-kmi.com.
“This designation is a true indicator of the efforts and dedication of the Office of Veteran Success (OVS) at GGC on behalf of our students,” said Dr. Melinda Spencer, senior associate provost for Operations. “The OVS provides support services and educational benefit programs to U.S. military veterans, national guardsmen, reservists and their eligible dependents and survivors who are enrolled at GGC.”
In addition to certifying GI Bill benefits, the Office of Veteran Success at GGC also provides information from campus-related resources, links to local military support services and contacts for local VA facilities.
The guide presents results of a questionnaire of the military-supportive policies enacted at GGC and more than 600 institutions including private, public, for-profit, not-for-profit, four-year and two-year colleges.
Now in its eighth year of publishing the guide, MAE was the first publication to launch a reference tool of this type.
“We believe the guide serves as an invaluable tool for both education services officers and transition officers when advising service members about their educational opportunities,” said Kelly Fodel, MAE’s editor. “We used strict criteria to individually evaluate the submissions of respondents, and we had a record number of schools participating this year.”
