It is our duty and our pleasure, and this latest distinction is a welcome acknowledgment that we are extremely committed to delivering the best and most comprehensive assistance possible in academia and beyond,” said Laura Scazzafavo, Director of Veterans Support Services, who is also a United States Navy combat veteran, adding that “Veteran Support Services at CSI is dedicated to providing the support needed to help servicemen and women adjust to college life. Our mission is to facilitate a smooth transition from military life to the college experience by providing veterans a strong support system and centralized “vet-friendly” services.

They thrive under pressure, and are highly educated and mobile,” said Daniel Nichols, Chief Product Officer at Victory Media’s Military Friendly® division. “Colleges and companies recognize these attributes and want to bring them on board. And, companies that employ both veterans and their spouses see even stronger retention and employee loyalty. Who better to train military spouses for successful careers than a Military Spouse Friendly School®?”
