There wouldn’t be a Marlboro without veterans.

Marlboro College is proud of its veteran history. Our founding president Walter Hendricks’ experience teaching World War II veterans in Biarritz was a key inspiration for founding Marlboro. Thanks to the first G.I. Bill, 35 of the college’s first 50 graduates were veterans. Their contributions, both intellectually and physically, shaped Marlboro’s self-directed, self-governed, and self-reliant identity.

At Marlboro, our mission is to teach students to think clearly and to learn independently, and this is best done in a diverse academic community. Veterans are an integral part of our community, and Marlboro deeply respects their service and sacrifice. Each member of our community is committed to helping student veterans take responsibility for their own education through an individualized course of study that is firmly grounded in the liberal arts.

Both our undergraduate and graduate programs are VA-approved and designated Military Friendly®. GI Bill® benefits including the Yellow Ribbon Program have enabled many veterans and their family members to attend Marlboro.
