The University of North Carolina at Pembroke has been named a “Military Friendly School for 2010!” by G.I. Jobs magazine.
The honor ranks UNCP in the top 15 percent of all colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide. UNCP serves Ft. Bragg through an office on base at the EArmyU Building.
As a “Military Friendly School,” UNCP will be included with a basic listing in G.I Jobs annual “Guide to Military Friendly Schools,” which is published in September 2009.
“Clearly UNCP has an interest in recruiting military students, and I urge you to continue your already stellar efforts by improving your military-friendliness every year,” said Rich McCormack, publisher of G.I Jobs.
“You can do so by improving the policies, efforts and results used to recruit and retain military and veteran students,” McCormack said. “These policies, efforts and results were carefully gleaned through our survey and weighted into our rankings.
“On behalf of the eight million military members and veterans seeking a school, I thank you for your commitment to educating our nation’s most deserving heroes,” he said.
UNCP offers undergraduate programs offered at Ft. Bragg, including the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), Bachelor of Arts in criminal justice and Bachelor of Science in business administration (management concentration).
