Chestnut Hill College has achieved national recognition as a “College of Distinction” for providing high-quality, hands-on learning in a vibrant and welcoming community.
This is the fourth year in a row the college has received the honor from Colleges of Distinction, an organization whose annual college guidebook identifies the nation’s top colleges and universities. The college was also named for a fourth time as both a Catholic and a Pennsylvania College of Distinction.
"As an institution whose primary goals are based on student success and satisfaction, Chestnut Hill College confirms its honor as one of the renowned Colleges of Distinction,” said Tyson Schritter, the chief operating officer for Colleges of Distinction. “Chestnut Hill College puts the student experience first, providing all the tools and opportunities they need to become lifelong learners who are ready to take on any challenge in today’s ever-evolving society.”
Established in 2000, Colleges of Distinction publishes an annual guidebook that is used as a resource by students, families, and high school guidance counselors. Schools are recognized as a College of Distinction if they have demonstrated excellence in four areas: engaged students, great teaching, vibrant communities, and successful outcomes. The organization selects colleges and universities based on their high-impact practices and student-centered programs that offer students hands-on educational experiences that build or expand upon their course of study, such as the College’s Academic Discovery Program.
