Military Connection: Sullivan University Recognized: By Joe Silva

Sullivan UAs service members transition out of the military, there are very few who find or even want civilian careers in the field of their military occupational specialty.  That is why education benefits for Veterans, such as the Post-9/11 GI Bill, are so important today. But what good are these benefits and securing an education if they don’t provide Veterans with the necessary tools to have successful post-military careers in the fields of their choosing?

That is what sets the Sullivan University System apart from other schools. Sullivan University has a long standing tradition of turning Veterans into professionals. Sullivan’s dedication to its military students is gaining attention.

For all that the school and staff do for Veterans, Sullivan was awarded the “2014 Veterans School Salute” by MilitaryConnection.com. And recently, Sullivan was also named one of the 2015’s “Best for Vets” Career and Technical Colleges by Military Times.

And the Sullivan University System, as well as three of its member schools, has been recognized as a Military Friendly School. Along with The Sullivan University System (which includes Sullivan’s Fort Knox Campus) the Sullivan College of Technology and Design, Spencerian Louisville and Spencerian Lexington have all been named by Victory Media—publisher of “G.I. Jobs” and the Guide to Military Friendly Schools—as Military Friendly Schools for 2015.

The 2015 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools doing the most to embrace America’s military service members and student veterans.

Since 1982, Sullivan University has had a strong relationship with the U.S. Army. That year, the leadership at Fort Knox recruited the faculty at Sullivan to train their cooks in culinary arts. Over the past 32 years, that relationship has blossomed. The dedicated professionals at Sullivan have celebrated many successes among their military and Veteran students.

Sullivan is committed to setting a career course for their students who are active-duty military, Veterans, members of the National Guard and Reserve, or military family members. The school’s six campuses, as well as its online program, accept the following: Post-9/11 GI Bill (CH.33), Veterans Educational Assistance Program (VEAP, CH.32), Vocational Rehabilitation (CH.31), Montgomery GI Bill (CH.30), MGIB-Select Reserve (Ch.1606), Reserve Education Assistance Program (REAP, CH.1607), Dependents Education Assistance Program (Ch.35), as well as GI Bill benefits that have been transferred to military dependents. In addition, Sullivan offers a number of private grants and scholarships for active-duty service members and Veterans whose tuition is not fully covered by other programs.

Along with affordable tuition, the service and programs offered at Sullivan are among the most Veteran-friendly in the country. The faculty and staff at Sullivan University believe that when it comes to education, one size does not fit all. That is why the school dismisses the “cookie cutter” education mentality, helping students create the academic plan that is individually suited to meet their goals and their needs.
