UW-Superior is highest ranked school in the Twin Ports

The University of Wisconsin-Superior has been designated a Military Friendly® Bronze School by G.I. Jobs®, recognizing the university’s efforts to assist military personnel, veterans and their family members in completing a college education.

“This is an exciting recognition for the university,” said Kat Werchouski, director of the Department of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion and senior diversity officer at UW-Superior. “Not only because UW-Superior has been designated a Military Friendly® School for 12 consecutive years. This is a testament to everything we do to focus on the success of our student veterans.”

As the highest-ranking school in the Twin Ports, G.I. Jobs® found that, “UW-Superior is dedicated to assisting military members in their college success and provides services that meet their needs in transitioning to higher education. A dedicated staff is here to assist students with securing their GI Bill benefits and navigating the admissions process. Based on academic policies, veteran students may receive transfer credit (maximum 32 semester credits) for education and some certain specialized training programs completed while in military. With a veteran center located on campus, veterans will find a welcoming atmosphere, a comfortable place to study, and resources that can help answer questions about campus and community support.”

UW-Superior received high marks for its academic policies and compliance, admissions and orientation, and culture and commitment. UW-Superior features a Veteran and Nontraditional Student Center that provides a wide range of support programming for veterans of all ages.

“This Military Friendly® Bronze School recognition is a testament to our fantastic staff and the Veteran and Nontraditional Student Center and the commitment we have as a university to the success of our student veterans,” said Werchouski. “Our campus initiatives continue to focus on the success of our veterans – many of whom have recently returned from active duty to begin their academics. It’s our goal to ensure the transition from the military to not only college but also civilian life is as natural as possible.”

Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Over 1,200 schools participated in the 2021-2022 survey with 747 earning the designation.

The 2021-2022 Military Friendly® Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine.

Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Viqtory with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining the institution’s survey response set and government/agency public data sources, within a logic-based scoring assessment. We measure the institution’s ability to meet thresholds for Student Retention, Graduation, Job Placement, Loan Repayment, Persistence (Degree Advancement or Transfer) and Loan Default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.

As the highest-ranking school in the Twin Ports, UW-Superior received high marks for its academic policies and compliance, admissions and orientation, and culture and commitment.
