An education at Quinnipiac embodies the University's commitment to three core values: high-quality academic programs, a student-oriented environment and a strong sense of community. QU prepares a diverse cadre of undergraduate and graduate students for achievement and leadership in business, communications, engineering, health, education, law, medicine, nursing and the liberal arts and sciences. QU educates students to be valued and contributing members of their communities through a vital, challenging and purposeful educational program, both resindent and online. Students engage real-world issues through practice and the consideration of different perspectives.
Why They Value Veterans
QU provides a team effort to support its servicemembers, veterans and their dependents. Through QU's Director of Veteran and Military Affairs, administrative and faculty offices support the day-to-day needs of its student veterans, enabling them to concentrate on "being a student." QU has provided a Veterans "Ready Room" that allows student veterans a place to relax, study and expand cameraderie. Matriculation and application fees are waived and QU accepts all VA education and disability benefits (Yellow Ribbon) as well as tuition assistance via the Dept. of Defense. QU provides numerous workshops to educate faculty and staff on student veteran issues and concerns. QU's Student Veteran Organization is a SVA member group and sponsors guest speakers and fund raising events dedicated to veteran related charities.
