JCC has been designated a 2016 Military Friendly® School by Victory Media, a resource for military personnel transitioning into civilian life.
The Military Friendly® Schools designation is awarded to the top colleges, universities, and trade schools in the U.S. that are doing the most to embrace military students, and to dedicate resources to ensure their success both in the classroom and after graduation.
Military Friendly® Schools provides service members and their families with transparent, data-driven ratings about post-military education and career opportunities.
Institutions competed for the elite Military Friendly® School title by completing a survey of over 100 questions covering 10 categories, including military support on campus, graduation and employment outcomes, and military spouse policies. Survey responses were scored against benchmarks across these key indicators of success.
JCC offers a variety of resources for student veterans at its Jamestown and Cattaraugus County campuses as well as its North County Center in Dunkirk. The resources are designed to enhance the success of students.
“Post-secondary institutions earning the 2016 Military Friendly® School award have exceptionally strong programs for transitioning service members and spouses,” said Daniel Nichols, chief product officer of Victory Media and a Navy Reserve veteran.
Victory Media is a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business founded in 2001. Victory’s lists are published in G.I. Jobs, Military Spouse, STEM JobsSM and Vetrepreneur media channels.
