Park University Earns Colleges of Distinction Accolade for Third Year in a Row

For the third year in a row, Park University has been selected as one 300 colleges and universities across the country to the 2013-14 Colleges of Distinction list. Park is one of just six colleges/universities in Missouri to earn the honor this year.

The designation is given to select schools to honor their excellence in student-focused higher education. Park University was found to excel in all four distinctions: engaged students, great teaching, vibrant communities and successful outcomes.

Colleges of Distinction is a web-based guide for high school juniors and seniors seeking a school that 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 then evaluated using qualitative and quantitative research. The colleges and universities are not ranked; instead they are members of a consortium of other equally impressive schools.

“We focus on colleges that are the best places to learn, grow and succeed,” said Tyson Schritter, executive editor of Colleges of Distinction. “Schools designated as Colleges of Distinction create well-rounded graduates and are among the very best in the country.”
