Asnuntuck Community College Named to Military Friendly Schools List
ENFIELD, Conn. — Asnuntuck Community College (ACC) announced it has earned the 2020-21 Military Friendly School designation.
“We greatly value the service the veterans have provided to our country,” Asnuntuck CEO Michelle Coach said. “We understand the importance of having a Veterans Oasis Center on campus. These individuals have a place to work, relax, and also relate to other veterans within the college. It is an honor to have them on our campus.”
Asnuntuck, along with Tunxis Community College, will serve for the third year as a sponsor of the Hartford Yard Goats’ Military Family of the Game, at each home game during the 2020 season.
Beth Egan, ACC’s veterans coordinator, has direct contact with ACC’s active-duty and veteran students. “It is an honor for Asnuntuck to receive this recognition,” she said. “We pride ourselves on our philosophy that students come first. Our military and veteran students make up an important part of our community.”
Institutions earning the Military Friendly School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. More than 1,000 schools participated in the 2020-21 survey, with 695 earning the designation.
The 2020-21 Military Friendly Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and can be found at www.militaryfriendly.com.
“Our ability to apply a clear, consistent standard to colleges creates a competitive atmosphere that encourages colleges to invest in programs to provide educational outcomes that are better for the Military Community as a whole,” said Josh Rosen, Military Friendly’s national director.
