UofL makes military-friendly list for 2013

by Denise Fitzpatrick, communications and marketing last modified Sep 17, 2012 09:28 AM

The University of Louisville has been named a Military Friendly School for 2013 by G.I. Jobs, a monthly magazine designed to help veterans make the transition from military service to the civilian workforce.

UofL has made the magazine’s list four years in a row.

The designation is based on how well the schools recruit military and veteran students and help them succeed in their studies.

In 2010, UofL opened a new office to provide counseling and academic support for military and veteran students. Since then, it has formed partnerships with Fort Knox and the Kentucky National Guard to promote an ongoing professional exchange among soldiers and their families and university faculty, staff and students.

Earlier this year, UofL launched a program designed to help people with military experience start businesses, organized a Friday night trolley hop on Frankfort Avenue for soldiers and their families and offered its first career fair for veterans.

The university also allows active military and civilian students at Fort Knox to pursue a bachelor’s degree in workforce leadership.
