Veteran Supportive Campus – Bryan University Receives Recognition

Share Article

Bryan University continues tradition of supporting veteran students achieve their dreams and aspirations.

Bryan University (, a leader in transforming students’ lives through engaging, experiential online education, was named an Arizona Veteran Supportive Campus by the Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services.

A Veteran Supportive Campus (VSC) is a post-secondary institution that is already in compliance with the State Approving Agency (SAA) and the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA), and certified as eligible to receive GI Bill Education Benefits. Veteran supportive campuses meet the required areas of focus criteria listed in the Arizona Veteran Supportive Campus (VSC) Statute, and apply to become a certified VSC through the Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services (ADVS).

To qualify as a Veteran Supportive Campus, schools must meet the required areas of focus:

  • Connect the culture – campus survey and metrics, including a campus steering committee
  • Ask the right questions – sensitivity and awareness, including orientation programs
  • Respond effectively – peer mentoring and support programs, including a resource center
  • Engage the military/veteran community – outreach strategies, including community collaborations

For consideration, Bryan University had to apply after the focus areas were met. The Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services reviewed the application and determined the institution followed the focus areas. The Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services will now list Bryan University on their website, and also list them with the ACMF Military/Veteran Resource Network.

Bryan University President, Eric Evans, had this to say about the achievement:

“This award underscores Bryan University’s commitment to our men and women who have served our country and provides us a greater opportunity to serve them. We are proud of this accomplishment and look forward to a continued legacy of student success.”

Bryan University in conjunction with our strategic online partner, DeXL, provides a new and fresh perspective in online learning for all students including military veterans.
