Herzing University Earns Prestigious "Best for Vets" Dedication

MILWAUKEE, Dec. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Herzing University is proud to announce that it has been recognized as a "Best for Vets" institution by Military Times, a trusted, independent source for news and information to service members. This prestigious recognition acknowledges Herzing's unwavering commitment to supporting military service members, veterans, and their families in their pursuit of higher education and career success.

Herzing University, founded in 1965 by Navy Veteran Henry Herzing, has a long-standing tradition of serving those who have served our country, and continues to dedicate itself to the educational and career aspirations of veterans, active duty personnel, guard and reserve members and their families. Herzing's commitment to military students goes beyond the classroom, providing personalized pathways and valuable experience to help veterans transition successfully into civilian life or accelerate their career opportunities within the military.

"At Herzing University, we take immense pride in supporting veterans and members of the U.S. Armed Forces because that service is a part of our foundation and the work we do each day," said Renee Herzing, President of Herzing University. "Whether it's offering easily accessible, affordable, and flexible opportunities for veterans or advocating for them through legislative efforts or in partnership with other national and local organizations, we remain fully dedicated to those who protect us both at home and abroad."

Herzing offers a range of resources and support services specifically designed for military-connected students, including:

The influence of Herzing's veteran support extends beyond the students, but to the faculty and staff as well, including CEVSS Program Director and 26-year Army Reservist, First Sergeant Beth Gilbertson, who has seen the impact of veteran support in education first hand.

"Education is the cornerstone of a veteran's future after the military. It is the foundation upon which they can build a new life of service - not through combat, but through knowledge," said Gilbertson. "Being recognized in this way is a true honor and it helps to show our veteran community that Herzing University is an institution that understands them and stands by them as they have stood by us. I'm continually inspired by their courage and commitment to advance their careers."

The Military Times 2023 Best for Vets: Colleges rankings have become a go-to resource for schools to spread the word about their veteran programs and help veterans make important decisions about their educational planning and how to use the education benefits they earned through military service.
