This year, UTA rose two spots in Military Times’ ranking of four-year institutions for veterans and their families, from No. 3 to No. 1 in the nation.
The Military Times Best for Vets: Colleges 2020 list recognizes UTA for its 85% veteran graduation rate, its large population of service members and veterans—totaling more than 3,100—and its ample experience working with military-connected students. The publication also cited UTA for its program to connect faculty and staff who served in the military with students who served, providing mentors who understand the military background.
“We are privileged to be able to serve our veterans and military-serving families. They served our nation with distinction and now bring a passion, ‘can-do’ attitude and enthusiasm to campus serving as role models and showing us the importance of commitment, dedication and honor,” UTA President Vistasp Karbhari says. “The recognition by Military Times reflects not just the high level of excellence made possible by our tremendous faculty and staff but also our commitment as a University to serve and support our veterans and military-serving families as they continue their education, and through it their service to our nation.”
