UIW Ranks High in Military Times 2015 Best for Vets Schools

San Antonio - University of the Incarnate Word was selected for the Military Times Best for Vets: Colleges 2015 rankings. UIW ranked #13 out of 100 selected schools recognized for their commitment to providing opportunities to America's veterans.

“We are very proud of our strong relationship with our military students, both active-duty and veterans.  We are happy to serve these heroes who have done so much to ensure our freedoms,” said UIW Vice President of Extended Academic Programs Dr. Cyndi Wilson Porter.

As with all Best for Vets rankings, Best for Vets: Colleges 2015 is an editorially independent news project that evaluates the many factors that make an organization a good fit for service members, military veterans and their families.

The survey-based Best for Vets: Colleges doesn’t manipulate mainstream research to skew more “veteran.” The detailed survey requires schools to meticulously document a tremendous array of services, special rules, accommodations and financial incentives offered to military and veteran students and to describe many aspects of veteran culture on a campus.

The rankings are published in full in the issues of Army Times, Navy Times, Air Force Times and Marine Corps Times on newsstands the week of Nov. 10; in the November issue of Military Times EDGE magazine; and online at MilitaryTimes.com, as well as ArmyTimes.com, NavyTimes.com, AirForceTimes.com and MarineCorpsTimes.com.

Military Times’ series of Best for Vets survey-based rankings includes: Colleges, Career & Technical Colleges, Business Schools, Franchises, Employers and Law Enforcement.
