    Meet Our Faculty

    I was surrounded by peers who went to school 10-15 years prior. I feel that my education catapulted me above my peers. After all, I was learning about current technologies and how to work in a global economy.
    Tami F. | BS, Computer Information Systems
    All of my instructors inspired me. They were working in the field as well as teaching, so the stories they shared made it relatable and attainable. The staff and faculty are all very positive and provide motivation for the students.
    Quinton J. | B.A. Psychology
    Attending Brandman University* has been one of the best decisions I've ever made and I can honestly say it's made me a better person. When you can take the things you learn in school and apply it, it makes you a better leader.
    Jorge H. | BA in Applied Studies
    *Brandman University is now UMass Global

    As a veteran, I definitely encourage other veterans to seek out what services the school offers. And even if you don't think you can qualify for the advantage, at least ask. It's not accepting a handout. It's encouraging other members in the military to take part in the program.
