Saint Martin’s University earns “military friendly” ranking

Saint Martin’s University in Lacey has been named a 2015 Military Friendly School.

The designation means that Saint Martin’s placed in the top 15 percent of a national survey by Victory Media of 8,000 schools that are approved for Post-9/11 GI Bill funding. The private Benedictine university first received the designation in 2010, and offers programs tailored to military members and veterans. It also has a branch campus on Joint Base Lewis-McChord.

“I am absolutely delighted that Saint Martin’s is once again recognized for its committment to the military community,” Radana Dvorak, dean of Saint Martin’s Extended Learning Division, said in a news release. “Our faculty, staff, administration and abbey have a long history of serving servicemembers, veterans and their families.”

The list of military friendly schools will be published in several military publications, and is often cited by national media outlets. For more information on the survey, go to www.militaryfriendly.com.
