Berkeley College has been named to the Military Times “Best for Vets: Colleges 2017” list for the fourth time. This recognition ranks Berkeley College among institutions that go above and beyond in providing academic and personal support for veterans pursuing a college degree. According to the Military Times, more than 500 schools responded to this year’s detailed survey, with university culture and academic outcomes carrying the most weight in survey results.
“It is an honor for Berkeley College to be recognized once again for our commitment to veterans and military students,” said Richard E. Robitaille, EdD, Berkeley College Assistant Vice President, Office of Military and Veterans Affairs. “We’re proud of the fact that we have six on-site Veterans Resource Centers – at the New York locations in Midtown Manhattan and Brooklyn and at the New Jersey locations in Dover, Newark, Woodbridge and Woodland Park. We also offer an Online Veterans Resource Center that has enabled us to reach a greater number of veteran students, including those stationed overseas,” said Dr. Robitaille.
Dr. Robitaille added that Veterans Resource Centers provide a location for veterans to receive information about their U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits. It is also a place where veteran students can meet with representatives from the College’s Office of Military and Veterans Affairs, socialize with other veterans, and obtain information about programs pertaining to military and veteran students.
Berkeley College supports the G.I. Bill and Yellow Ribbon Program, and collaborates on national ventures with the National Guard, the Army and the Air Force, the GoArmyEd distance learning program, and the Navy College Program Distance Learning Partnership.
