Judson University Receives Colleges of Distinction Honor

College of Distinction logos (Elgin, IL – April 22, 2020) Judson University has been recognized for its honorable commitment to engaged, experiential education by Colleges of Distinction.

Judson University has been listed as a Christian College of Distinction since 2015. This distinction is defined as an institution recognized nationally by education professionals for excellence in teaching undergraduates and providing innovative learning experiences and opportunities. The university has also been recognized for its business and education programs.

While higher education has changed over the last 20 years, Colleges of Distinction’s selection process has focused on conducting in-depth research and detailed interviews with the schools. The organization only accepts those universities that adhere to the four distinctions of Engaged Students, Great Teaching, Vibrant Community, and Successful Outcomes. In the last few years, the organization has been looking into High-Impact Practices. This model prioritizes the opportunities institutions have for students that make for a fulfilling, individualized college experience. In an environment distinguished by globally-engaged, evangelical Christianity, Judson University will provide life-changing learning and teaching opportunities marked by unprecedented creativity, stewardship and joy.

“Each school is different, just as every student is different,” said Founder Wes Creel. “There is no number-one college for everyone, so we never rank those in our cohort.” Judson University’s inclusion is informed by the unique ways it commits to achieving success.

“It’s inspiring to see Judson University commit to the learning styles and community involvement that will best allow their students to thrive,” Creel said.
