Kansas City, Mo. — September 3, 2013 — The Summer 2013 issue of U.S. Veterans Magazine names Grantham University,, an accredited online university, as one of the 2013 “Top Veteran-Friendly Schools.”  Grantham was chosen based on the results of an annual evaluation of U.S. colleges, universities and MBA schools by DiversityComm, Inc.

Founded by a veteran in 1951, Grantham University has a rich culture of support for service members, veterans and spouses. The University has military-friendly policies for both students and employees and ensures that faculty is well-trained in military culture, adult learning strategies and online best practices.

“Service members and veterans contend with pressures and responsibilities that the average student may not ever face,” says Dr. Jeffrey Cropsey, Vice President for Strategic Initiatives and External Relations. “That’s why we take great care and pride in offering not just outstanding education, but superior support services for all of our students. We are thrilled to be recognized by U.S.Veterans Magazine for those efforts.”

Master of Healthcare Administration student and U.S. Navy veteran, Nathan Antonio, can attest to the support that the University provides. “Their services have far exceeded my expectations and the communication with staff has been very pleasant, making me feel like a part of the family,” he said. “Grantham is a genuine university dedicated to supporting our military and veterans like me.”

Grantham University offers 100 percent online degree programs, an interactive online learning environment, and a solid student support structure to ensure that all service members have the opportunity to earn an undergraduate or graduate degree.
