UD Honored for Excellence in Student-Focused Higher Education
The University of Dallas has been honored as a 2013-14 College of Distinction, a designation
given to select schools to honor excellence in student-focused higher education. The
university was found to excel in all four distinctions: engaged students, great teaching,
vibrant communities and successful outcomes.
This is the fourth consecutive year that UD has been named a College of Distinction.
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.
"We're excited to be named once again as a College of Distinction," said John Plotts,
vice president for enrollment and student affairs. "We're especially pleased to be
recognized for our faculty's stellar teaching and our unique Core curriculum, which
set UD apart from other institutions."
"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."
