University of Dallas Honored for Distinctive Educational Excellence

University Honored for Educational Excellence by Colleges of Distinction

Richard OlenickThe University of Dallas is now featured on CollegesofDistinction.com, a website dedicated to honoring schools nationwide for their excellence in student-focused higher education. Colleges and universities are nominated for participation in Colleges of Distinction through recommendations of high school counselors, as well as quantitative research.

Once nominated, colleges are assessed using the four distinctions: student engagement, quality of teaching, vibrancy of the college community and success of graduates. The University of Dallas excelled in all four and will receive a personal profile on the Colleges of Distinction website.

"We're excited at being selected again as a College of Distinction," said Jill Corbin, associate vice president of enrollment. "We're especially pleased at being recognized in the four areas of distinction, which we think sets the University of Dallas apart from other institutions. Our excellent academic programs, engaged campus and unique Core curriculum all lead to the notable successes of our students."

"Schools designated as 'Colleges of Distinction' create well-rounded graduates and are among the very best in the country," said Tyson Schritter, executive editor of Colleges of Distinction. "While each school is one of a kind, they all share a common theme: they are all great places to get an education."
