The University of Missouri was recently included on the Military Times’ Best for Vets list. The list includes 366 institutions across the United States and markets itself as the largest and most comprehensive rankings of schools for military service members and veterans.
“Campus leadership is committed to making Mizzou a friendly environment for veterans and military service members,” said Robert Ross, director of the MU Student Veterans Resource & Support Center. “We have that top-down support, which enhances our efforts in serving military-connected students.”
Mizzou is home to nearly 900 MU students who are either veterans, active-duty personnel, National Guard members, reservists, ROTC cadets, midshipmen or family members receiving GI Bill benefits. The university is designated a Purple Heart University in recognition of its support of military members, including veterans and their families.
This is not the first time Mizzou has been recognized for its support of veterans. Most recently, MU ranked 86 in U.S. News & World Report’s list of Best Colleges for Veterans.
