ENMU Recognized as a Military Spouse Friendly School for 2018

PORTALES, NM (03/07/2018) Victory Media, the ratings organization and publisher of Military Spouse Magazine and digital media, recently announced its 2018 Military Spouse Friendly Schools®, which included Eastern New Mexico University. The annual companion list to Military Friendly® Schools recognizes those higher education institutions that actively recruit and support spouses of active duty service members while acknowledging and supporting military spouse students through the unique challenges of military life.

This year's list features over 100 institutions across 11 categories, demonstrating the growing success among all sizes and types of post-secondary schools for tapping into this talented group of men and women.

"Military spouses are expert problem-solvers. They thrive under pressure, and are highly educated and mobile," said Daniel Nichols, Chief Product Officer at Victory Media's Military Friendly® division. "Colleges and companies recognize these attributes and want to bring them on board. And, companies that employ both veterans and their spouses see even stronger retention and employee loyalty. Who better to train military spouses for successful careers than a Military Spouse Friendly School®?"

The latest Military Friendly® Schools survey included questions that not only evaluated whether a school's admissions, retention, career counseling and mentoring programs are better for veterans, but also whether they address concerns of military spouses and families, including flexible learning options and degree continuation to accommodate deployments and relocation.

Colleges earning the Military Spouse Friendly School® designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from Victory Media's proprietary survey. The list of 2018 Military Spouse Friendly Schools® will be featured in the April issue of Military Spouse Magazine.
