PORTALES — Eastern New Mexico has been selected as a Best for Vets College for 2021 by Military Times, according to a school release.
The school was one of 366 in the country to receive the recognition.
“ENMU is very proud of our faculty, staff and students who have served our country or are currently serving, and we are delighted to be selected for this designation,” ENMU President Patrice Caldwell said in the release. “Veterans are an asset to our classrooms, our community and our nation. We are honored to serve them.”
Military Times annually sends a survey about programs and services for veterans, and uses the survey plus data obtained from the Department of Education and Department of Veterans Affairs.
The college also holds a Military Friendly designation from Military Times, which marks a school’s service to veteran military personnel, active-duty personnel, spouses and dependents, National Guard and Reserves members, and survivors of disabled or deceased veterans.
