BHC designated a Military Friendly School for fifth year

MFS15_200x200Black Hawk College has been named a 2015 Military Friendly School by Victory Media.

The 2015 Military Friendly Schools list highlights 1,600 institutions that exhibit leading practices to support military students. Schools earned rights to the Military Friendly® trademarked designation via qualifying scores from a rigorous survey assessment.

Black Hawk College was designated a Military Friendly School from 2011-2014 but serving veterans is not a new mission for the college.

When the college conducted its first classes in September 1946, 73 percent of the 239 students were World War II veterans.

This semester, there are 232 Black Hawk College students receiving veterans’ benefits.

“As a Military Friendly School, we are constantly striving to find new ways to best serve our veterans, military students and their families,” said Marceia Duhm, coordinator of career and veterans services at Black Hawk College.

“Our Veterans Resource Center encourages our military students and veterans to be active in the college and their communities,” she said. “It provides support for those needing a little direction and encouragement as they transition from the military to civilian life.”

The college also has the Military Students and Veterans Club, a chapter of Student Veterans of America.

The Military Friendly Schools designation process includes extensive research and a data-driven survey of schools nationwide approved for Post-9/11 GI Bill funding.
