Chatham University named a College of Distinction
Chatham University has once again been honored as a College of Distinction for its individualized and engaging education. In addition, Chatham was also honored for its undergraduate programs in Business, Nursing, and Education and the services provided by its Office of Career Development.
This award is unique among popular college guide classifications, which typically rank schools on the basis of numbers like the size of endowment, selectivity, and administrative stats. With Colleges of Distinction, Chatham earned its recognition for the excellence exhibited in the classroom and the incorporation of high-impact practices throughout every student’s undergraduate education.
“We are so proud to see Chatham University walking the walk,” said Tyson Schritter, Chief Operating Officer for Colleges of Distinction. “Colleges of Distinction knows that a truly valuable education can’t be measured by rank or reputation. Students learn and thrive best when they embrace hands-on learning in a vibrant, welcoming community.”
Colleges of Distinction’s selection process consists of detailed interviews and research for each institution’s freshman experience and retention efforts alongside its general education programs, career development, strategic plan, student satisfaction, and more. Schools are accepted on the basis that they adhere to the Four Distinctions: Engaged Students, Great Teaching, Vibrant Community, and Successful Outcomes.
“Colleges of Distinction doesn’t rank schools, because we know that every student is different in what they need to best learn, grow, and succeed,” said Schritter. “Instead, we value schools that embrace those differences. Chatham University puts the student experience first, providing all the tools and opportunities they need to become lifelong learners who are ready to take on any challenge in today’s ever-evolving society.”
