WEST HAVEN — As Veterans Day approached, Military Times announced that the University of New Haven was one of 140 U.S. colleges to be named in the publication’s fifth annual “Best for Vets: Colleges 2015” rankings.

According to Sean-Michael Green, UNH’s associate vice president for graduate enrollment and marketing. “I view this as a good starting point to expand our services to veterans. We will continue to build on this foundation with the goal of serving as a premier institution for veterans and service members not just in the U.S. but around the world.”

“Best for Vets: Colleges 2015” is an editorially independent news project that evaluates multiple factors that make an organization a good fit for service members, military veterans and their families.
