SAN DIEGO, Nov. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In recognition of Veterans Day and in gratitude of the sacrifice of the men and women who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, the NewSchool of Architecture & Design (NewSchool) today honored its employee and student veterans, and thanked them for their service.
In early 2016, Accrediting Council for Military & Veterans Education and Training ( ACMVET) named NewSchool the "First Regionally Accredited School in the State of California" to be certified and recognized as "Military & Veteran Supportive Campus" by ACMVET. The accrediting/certifying commissioners certified NewSchool based on its solid academic curricula, military and veteran educational benefits, services, support, and community networking and outreach provided by its San Diego, California campus. The certification identifies academic institutions that have gone above and beyond to provide not only a quality education but additional services and support to the military and veteran communities. Last year, NewSchool debuted a new Veterans' Resource Center, which gives students receiving military benefits access to information about services available in our local community, and also enables them to meet and interact with one another in a supportive space on campus. NewSchool continues to participate in the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program and is proud to be designated as a Military-Friendly School and receive the Military & Veteran Supportive Campus recognition from ACMVET. NewSchool remains committed to ensuring that those who have served — and continue to serve our country — have access to quality education during and following their service.
