Mitchell—Mitchell Technical Institute announced that it has earned the 2020-2021 Military Friendly® School designation.
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 2020-2021 survey with 695 earning the designation.
The 2020-2021 Military Friendly® Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and can be found at www.militaryfriendly.com.
MTI president Mark Wilson commented that “Mitchell Tech has a deep-rooted respect for our military students, faculty and staff members, whether veterans, active service members, National Guard or Reserve or military spouses. Our faculty and staff members with military backgrounds use those experiences to develop relationships with students who have had similar experiences. We are proud of what our veterans and service members bring to enhancing educational, professional and social relationships at MTI.”
Military Friendly’s National Director Josh Rosen stated, “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.”
Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Viqtory with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining the institution’s survey scores with the assessment of the institution’s ability to meet thresholds for Student Retention, Graduation, Job Placement, Loan Repayment, Persistence (Degree Advancement or Transfer) and Loan Default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.
