Culver-Stockton College named an elite College of Distinction

Culver-Stockton College has been named to the 2015-2016 cohort by Colleges of Distinction. The goal of Colleges of Distinction is to provide students, counselors and parents information about schools that excel in key areas. The key areas that colleges on which evaluated for acceptance into the listing are the level of engagement of students, the teaching style of the faculty, the overall vibrancy of the community, and the outcomes of the graduates and alumni.

“We are extremely flattered to have earned this distinction,” said Dr. Kelly M. Thompson, president of Culver-Stockton. “It is always nice when third parties recognize our efforts to create an active and experiential learning experience for our students. We hope this nomination helps us to further the message of the College and provide opportunities to even more students.”

To admit a college into the cohort, Colleges of Distinction uses a methodology that is both qualitative and quantitative. Qualitative information is taken from admission experts from across the nation, as well as senior administration, faculty, alumni and current students from each nominated college. The quantitative data that Colleges of Distinction uses to assess each institution covers graduation rates, class sizes and enrollment data.
