Kansas Wesleyan Again Named College of Distinction™

You are here

Kansas Wesleyan University has again been named a College of Distinction™, Kansas College of Distinction™ and Christian College of Distinction™ for 2015-16. 

The Colleges of Distinction™ designation recognizes select schools for excellence in student-focused higher education. Kansas Wesleyan is one of 325 colleges and universities in the nation (out of 2,474 American public and private four-year schools) to be so honored for 2015-16, and one of just six in the state of Kansas.

Schools selected must excel in four distinctions: engaged students, great teaching, vibrant communities and successful outcomes. KWU once again stood out in all four areas.

Kansas Wesleyan previously received these same three recognitions for 2014-15, and received a profile on the Colleges of Distinction™ website (http://collegesofdistinction.com/school/kansas-wesleyan-university/). 

Colleges of Distinction™ is a web-based guide for high school juniors and seniors seeking a college education. It is nationally recognized and highly recommended by professionals in the field of education. Colleges and universities are nominated for participation by high school counselors and evaluated using qualitative and quantitative research. Colleges of Distinction™ interviews senior administration, faculty, alumni and current students at nominated colleges.

Tyson Schritter, executive editor of Colleges of Distinction™, points to the value of its recognition for high school students who are choosing a college. “We focus on colleges that are the best places to learn, grow and succeed,” Schritter said. “Schools designated as ‘Colleges of Distinction’ create well-rounded graduates and are among the very best in the country.”
