The University of Portland’s Pamplin School of Business was given the Seven Seals Award for its support of military personnel. Robin Anderson, dean of the Pamplin School, and Dave Romero, director of the university’s Air Force and Army Reserve Officer Training Corps, accepted the award at the Northwest Military Employer Summit in June at Camp Withycombe in Clackamas.

The Seven Seals Award recognizes significant individual or organizational achievement, initiative, or support.

“Our faculty and staff are committed to ensuring our veterans — many of whom take advantage of the opportunities we make available to pursue advanced degrees in our graduate programs — are successful,” said Anderson.

The school cooperates with Vetwork PDX, a Portland-based group offering networking opportunities for veterans. The school also hosts alumni lunches, focus groups and builds digital campaigns to assist military personnel. The Pamplin School also works with the Oregon Department of Veteran Affairs.

In addition, ROTC programs at U.P. provide military education, management and leadership opportunities while students complete bachelor’s or master’s degrees. The university subsidizes scholarship winners with free room and board and remaining tuition and fees.
