Caldwell University Honored for Distinctive Educational Excellence
Caldwell, NJ – January 22, 2013 – Caldwell University is featured on CollegesofDistinction.com, a website dedicated to honoring schools nationwide for their excellence in student-focused higher education.
“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™.
Colleges and universities are nominated for participation in Colleges of Distinction™ through high school counselors’ recommendations as well as quantitative research.
Once nominated, the colleges are assessed using the Four Distinctions: student engagement, quality of teaching, vibrancy of the college community and success of graduates. Schools featured on CollegesofDistinction.com must meet minimum standards in each category.
Caldwell University was found to excel in all Four Distinctions and will receive a personal profile on the Colleges of Distinction™ website.
Joseph Posillico, vice president of enrollment management and communications at Caldwell University, says receiving the recognition is great news for future and current students, faculty, and alumni. “The Colleges of Distinction honor speaks to the caliber of our faculty and to the fact that our students, upon graduation, are prepared to go out there and make a real difference in the marketplace.”
CollegeofDistinction.com offers dynamic college profiles and easy-to-use search tools for students, parents, and counselors. The website includes tips from high school guidance counselors, essays from college students, presidents and other members of campus communities.
“While each school is one of a kind, they all share a common theme: they are all a great place to get an education,” Schritter said.
