Bossier Parish Community College
Bossier Parish Community College has again been designated a Military Friendly School by Victory Media, a leader in successfully connecting the military and civilian worlds. The 2015 Military Friendly Schools designation is awarded to the 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace military students and to dedicate resources to ensure their success in the classroom and after graduation. This is the fourth consecutive year that BPCC has been named to the list.
"We view serving those who have so ably served this nation as an honor and a privilege,” BPCC Chancellor Jim Henderson said of the announcement. “Barksdale Air Force Base is a vital part of this community and a tremendous partner to BPCC, but we have a large contingent of reserves, National Guard, and veterans from all branches of our military. They all deserve our best."
Now in its sixth year, the Military Friendly Schools designation and list by Victory Media is a trusted resource for post-military success. Military Friendly provides service members transparent, data-driven ratings about post-military education and career opportunities.
The methodology used for making the Military Friendly Schools list has changed the student veteran landscape, making it more transparent, and has played a significant role in the past six years in capturing and advancing best practices to support military students across the country. The survey captures more than 50 leading practices in supporting military students and is available free of charge to more than 8,000 schools approved for Post-9/11 GI Bill funding.
