Woodbury Recognized as a ‘College of Distinction’ for Fifth Consecutive Year

For the fifth time in as many years, Woodbury has been recognized as a “College of Distinction.” According to Colleges of Distinction, Woodbury has created a unique environment where the student experience is at the center of learning. Problem- and project-based learning strategies are integrated throughout the university’s curriculum, often in community settings where individual and collaborative contributions make a significant difference, the organization noted.

“Colleges of Distinction applauds Woodbury for pushing the envelope with its up-to-date curriculum, enriching the college experience with high-impact educational practices, and providing every student with an education that stretches far beyond what’s typically required from an academic major,” said Tyson Schritter, Chief Content Officer for Colleges of Distinction.

Colleges of Distinction has recognized and honored schools throughout the U.S. for excellence in undergraduate-focused higher education for more than 15 years. The member schools within the Colleges of Distinction consortium distinguish themselves through their focus on the undergraduate experience. For more information, visit CollegesofDistinction.com.

The annual process of selecting the nation’s Colleges of Distinction requires that institutions adhere to the Four Distinctions—Engaged Students, Great Teaching, Vibrant Community, and Successful Outcomes. This process also includes a review of each institution’s freshman experience, as well as its general education program, strategic plan, and alumni success, satisfaction measures and more.
