Why Herzing?

You served us—now, we serve you

The first Herzing campus was founded in 1965 by Henry Herzing, a proud veteran of the U.S. Navy. The strength, diligence, and determination he brought from the service into higher education set the standard we work to uphold every day.

We are committed to serving you with the same integrity with which you served your country. Our goal is to provide you with the education and support services you need to help you find the career success you deserve.

We are thrilled to have earned the 2022-2023 Military Friendly® School designation by VIQTORY, publisher of G.I. Jobs® and Military Spouse.® It is Herzing’s second time receiving the recognition, the first coming in 2021.
