Honolulu–Military Advanced Education (MAE) has awarded Chaminade University the designation of a Top School in its  2015 MAE Guide to  Colleges & Universities, measuring best practices in military and veteran education. The Guide was released in the December issue of MAE, available online at www.mae-kmi.com.  The Guide presents results of a questionnaire on the military-supportive policies enacted at more than 600 institutions including private, public, for-profit, not-for-profit, four-year, and two-year colleges. From community colleges to state universities, online universities and nationally known centers of higher learning, MAE’s 2015 Guide to Colleges & Universities provides students with information about institutions that go out of their way to give back to men and women in uniform.

“We are humbled by the designation,” said Sumoha Jani, Chaminade’s associate director of the Office of Professional and Continuing Education (PACE). “It is wonderful to know that Chaminade’s degree programs continue to be relevant and well-received by our military contingent.”

Chaminade University has been supporting the educational goals of service members since 1967 and offers classes onsite at several O‘ahu military bases as well as online courses available every ten-week term starting in January, April, July and October. Classes on base are open to military personnel, their family members and civilians. The Office of Professional and Continuing Education (PACE) manages courses offered at military bases for Chaminade.

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.
