For the first time ever, Stockton University has earned official designation as a "Military Spouse Friendly" School by the national Military Friendly organization for 2022-2023.

Stockton University underwent a rigorous review, which featured both public data comparison and the results of a proprietary survey.

"We are pleased to receive this recognition, especially after getting the Silver Military Friendly designation earlier this year," said Michael Barany, the director of Stockton's Military and Veterans Success Center.

"We know that it's important to not just serve veterans, but support their spouses and families too, and that's an integral part of what we do here at Stockton University,” said Barany.
