Elmhurst University has once again been recognized as a school that answers the call for its student-veterans—and, in a new development this year, their spouses.
The University was cited as a Military Friendly® Top 10 School and a Military Friendly® Spouse School that supports student-veterans and their spouses throughout their academic journey.
Elmhurst offers a host of benefits to military and veteran students and their spouses, including tuition-matching funds through the Yellow Ribbon Program and a campus chapter of Student Veterans of America.
In addition, Elmhurst alumnus Tim Jans ’74 and his brother Robert pledged $3.4 million to the University in 2021 to support student veterans on campus and encourage more STEM students to explore military careers.
“A Military Friendly designation helps military-connected students find the colleges and universities that would best suit their specific needs,” Associate Director of Student Financial Services Allison Hostetler said. “My hope is that the attention we give military-connected students will keep the Elmhurst experience top-of-mind for incoming military-affiliated students and their spouses.”
The 2022-2023 designation from the Military Friendly® organization was given to Elmhurst because of its support for all members of the military community, including active duty, reserve and guard service members, veterans and military spouses. The University also continues to rank among the top institutions in the Midwest on U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges for Veterans list.
