Baldwin Wallace Supports Veterans Through Ongoing Initiatives
Baldwin Wallace University continues to receive recognition for exceptional programs that serve the educational and transitional needs of veterans returning from active duty as well as those fully immersed in civilian life. Currently, 87 veterans are enrolled in undergraduate and graduate programs.
Recognized as a Yellow Ribbon Institution
Lauded for its role in supporting veterans, BW has been designated a Yellow Ribbon institution by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. This honor enables qualifying Post-9/11 veterans to attend Baldwin Wallace tuition free.
Honored as a Military Friendly School
For the third consecutive year, BW has been designated a Military Friendly School for its excellence in serving the needs of America's military service members and veterans. This recognition ranks BW in the top 20 percent of all colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide.
Dedicated to Providing Student Veterans Support
Among its targeted services to students, BW sponsors a student veteran organization and a veteran's community hour that promotes camaraderie. In addition, the College has recruited staff and faculty with military backgrounds to mentor students and create a campus environment supportive to veteran needs.
Working to further its military-friendly offerings, BW has created a Veterans Advisory Council comprised of faculty, staff, students, alumni and community members. The group is developing a strategic plan for veteran initiatives on campus.
"BW is committed to providing a supportive environment and staff dedicated to meeting the needs of our veterans as they move from military life to the classroom," said Nancy Jirousek, director of adult and continuing education/veteran services at Baldwin Wallace University. "We value their contributions to this country and are devoted to working hard to help them achieve academic success while they are here."
