University of Northern Iowa Named to List of Military-Friendly Institutions

A military magazine for student veterans puts the University of Northern Iowa at the top of its list for military-friendly institutions.

Guide to Military Friendly Colleges and Universities selected the University of Northern Iowa as an institution that goes out of its way to implement military-friendly policies for men and women in uniform.

The magazine surveyed 500 schools that responded to their questionnaire assessing military culture, financial assistance, flexibility, online support and support on campus. UNI’s military culture, support online and on-campus support ranked highest.

“We are honored with this recognition,” said Julia Heuer, coordinator of military and veteran student services at UNI. “With continual incorporation of military-affiliated students’ candid input and support from the university, we will meet our students’ expectations of service and stay on the forefront of being a military friendly campus.”
