University of Dubuque ranks third in the nation on Victory Media’s 2018 Military Friendly Schools list for private schools offering a doctorate. In its 16th year, the Military Friendly Schools list provides a comprehensive guide for veterans and their families using data sources from federal agencies, student veterans, and proprietary survey information from participating organizations.
The mission of Military Friendly Schools is to make life better for veterans and their spouses by setting the standard for higher education institutions to provide positive opportunities.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly School designation were evaluated using public data sources and responses from a propriety survey completed by the school. For the first time, student survey data was taken into consideration for the designation. More than 1,300 schools participated in the 2017-2018 survey with 849 earning the designation.
There are over 160 military affiliated students at UD.
