Tulsa, OK – For the first time ever, three local career colleges, Community Care College, Clary Sage College, and Oklahoma Technical College, are named in the Top 10 Military Friendly® Private Vocational Colleges nationwide.
Four Oklahoman institutions are represented on the National Top 10 list, with Community Care College, Clary Sage College, and Oklahoma Technical College ranking fourth, fifth, and sixth out of 10, respectively, and Rhema Bible Training College ranking ninth on the list.
According to MilitaryFriendly, in order to earn this recognition, “colleges and businesses have exceeded benchmarks for recruitment, retention, advancement, support and job placement of veterans… Military Friendly® lists and resources cut through the clutter, offering a holistic, objective view of education, employment and entrepreneurship opportunities, regardless of the organization’s industry, program type or tax filing status. Each year, the bar is raised, as [the] benchmarks are set by the leading organization, not by a static set of criteria, which ultimately results in continual investment in the military and veteran communities.”
Along with designated scholarship opportunities for veterans, active members of the military, and their spouses, Community Care College, Clary Sage College, and Oklahoma Technical College provide continual “Green Zone Training” to faculty and staff members to ensure adequate support and guidance is provided to individuals and families of those who have or continue to serve the country through the armed forces. The term “Green Zone” describes locations that veterans consider to be safe.
