The University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown's iniative in support of our veterans is a combination of positive efforts, such as the MountainCat Veterans Program, the GI Bill, and a cooperative policy for active-duty students. Pitt-Johnstown is honored to be a six-time recipient of the Military Friendly Schools distinction. Currently, our student body includes more than 50 veteran students.
“We are deeply grateful for the service of our military veterans and are strongly committed to their success as they transition from their military careers to the classroom and beyond.”

Pitt-Johnstown is also home to The Heroes Memorial, believed to be the only memorial of its kind on any college campus in the United States.
The memorial pays tribute to those who died on September 11, 2001, as well as the service men and women who have been killed in Afghanistan and Iraq. At the center of the memorial is a 3,500-pound steel I-beam from the World Trade Center, which was attacked on September 11, 2001.
