UI makes Military Friendly Schools list for fourth year

For the fourth year in a row, the University of Iowa made Victory Media’s list of Military Friendly Schools. The list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities, and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members and veterans as students and ensure their success on campus.

Now in its fourth year, the 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 VA-approved schools nationwide.

The UI is an attractive institution for the estimated 518 veterans currently on campus because of the combination of a high-quality-but-affordable education and the availability of resources for disabled veterans, according to Larry Lockwood, assistant provost for enrollment services. Forty percent of UI veterans have a disability of some sort, Lockwood adds.

U.S. News ranks UI among best 30 public universities in the nation

The University of Iowa ranks 28th among the nation’s best public universities, according to the latest rankings published by the magazine U.S. News & World Report.

UI President Sally Mason says, “The new U.S. News rankings indicate the University of Iowa’s strength and stability. I am delighted and proud that we remain among the top 30 national public universities. I thank our entire university community—faculty, staff, and students—for the talent and commitment that lead to our nationally recognized excellence.”

The magazine also ranked undergraduate programs in business and engineering for 2013. The UI’s Henry B. Tippie College of Business is ranked 21st among public schools, while the College of Engineering is ranked 33rd among public universities with doctoral programs.
