Mansfield University receives Military Friendly School designation for 10th consecutive year


MANSFIELD – Mansfield University was named to the 2021-22 Military Friendly® School list, marking the 10th consecutive year receiving the distinguished honor.

Institutions earning the Military Friendly School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. 

“I am very proud of Mansfield University and all of our faculty and staff for making veterans and military-connected students such a high priority, even during the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic,” President Charles Patterson said.  

Mansfield met and exceeded six standards in the Military Friendly Rating including Academic Policies & Compliance, Admissions & Orientation, Culture & Commitment, Financial Aid & Assistance, Graduation & Career, and Military Student Support & Retention.
