MELBOURNE, FLA. — Florida Institute of Technology has been named a top school by Military Advanced Education’s 2015 Guide to Colleges & Universities, which measures best practices in military and veteran education.
The Guide was released in the December issue of MAE and is available online at www.mae-kmi.com.
Military Advanced Education, or MAE, serves education services officers and transition officers at every U.S. military installation, along with the service members they counsel. Published 10 times yearly, MAE’s editorial coverage includes exclusive interviews with military executive leadership, educators, and members of Congress; best practices; career and transition spotlights, and other content.
MAE’s guide presents results of a questionnaire of the military-supportive policies enacted at more than 600 institutions including private, public, for-profit, not-for-profit, four-year, and two-year colleges. It lets readers know about the colleges and universities “that go out of their way to give back to our men and women in uniform.”
Now in its eighth year of publishing the Guide, MAE was the first publication to launch a reference tool of this type. This year, institutes were evaluated on their military culture, financial aid, flexibility, on-campus support and online support services.
“We believe the Guide serves as an invaluable tool for both education services officers and transition officers when advising service members about their educational opportunities,” said Kelly Fodel, MAE’s editor. “We used strict criteria to individually evaluate the submissions of respondents, and we had a record number of schools participating this year.”
