CSI Named to Top Military Friendly Schools List for 2017

January 03, 2017

It has been announced that The College of Staten Island (CSI) is a Top 10 Military Friendly Gold Award Recipient for 2017.  The designation comes from Victory Media, the leader in successfully connecting the military and civilian worlds, and publisher of G.I. Jobs®, STEM Jobs and Military Spouse.

“I am honored that the College of Staten Island has been awarded the Gold Award, an elite Military Friendly designation for 2017. CSI continues to pursue innovative and collaborative ways to ensure that the veterans in our community have access to the best possible resources and services,” commented William J. Fritz, Ph.D., President of the College of Staten Island.

The mission of CSI’s Veterans Support Services is to facilitate a smooth transition from military life to the college experience by providing veteran students with centralized “vet-friendly” services and a strong support system.  Veterans Support Services collaborates with veteran organizations within the community in order to identify additional resources and foster a sense of community between CSI student veterans and the veteran population on Staten Island. This relationship ensures that Veterans Support Services stays current on all new legislation and initiatives that will affect our student veteran population.

“The College of Staten Island is dedicated to helping our student veterans have a stress-free transition into the world of academia; from admissions to graduation, we will guide our veterans through every step of their journey. We are proud to serve our nation’s heroes and their families,” said Laura Scazzafavo, Director of Veterans Support Services, who is also a United States Navy combat veteran.
