UW-Platteville Selected as a Top School in Military Advanced Education's 2015 Guide to Colleges & Universities

Platteville, Wis., January 26, 2015 – Military Advanced Education (MAE) has awarded the University of Wisconsin-Platteville a Top School designation in its 2015 MAE Guide to  Colleges & Universities, measuring best practices in military and veteran education. The Guide is available online at 

From community colleges to state universities, online universities and nationally known centers of higher learning, MAE’s 2015 Guide to Colleges & Universities arms students with information about institutions that go out of their way to give back to our men and women in uniform.

Now in its eighth year of publishing the Guide, MAE was the first publication to launch a reference tool of this type. This year, institutes were evaluated on their military culture, financial aid, flexibility, on-campus support and online support services. Each school’s performance rating by category is represented by an easy-to-recognize dashboard. This enables prospective students to quickly target schools that follow best practices in military education, and then put these in context with other academic or career considerations.

“We believe the Guide serves as an invaluable tool for both education services officers and transition officers when advising service members about their educational opportunities,” said Kelly Fodel, MAE’s editor. “We used strict criteria to individually evaluate the submissions of respondents, and we had a record number of schools participating this year.”

“Receiving this designation is a great honor. It acknowledges our commitment to providing a quality education to both our active military and veteran students no matter where they are, across the country or on the other side of the world,” said Dawn Drake, executive director of Alternative Delivery Systems for UW-Platteville.
