Written by on October 29, 2013 in News

Iowa Wesleyan College has been honored as a 2013-14 College of Distinction. The College of Distinction designation is given to select schools to honor their excellence in student-focused higher education. Iowa Wesleyan College was found to excel in all Four Distinctions and will receive a personal profile on the Colleges of Distinction™ website.

“We’re very proud to receive this distinction,” said Iowa Wesleyan College President Dr. Steven Titus. “It is a reflection of the dedication and excellence of our faculty, staff and students who are committed to a dynamic student learning experience. As Iowa’s oldest and most historic College, Iowa Wesleyan has been providing students with innovative programs and a pioneering spirit for over 171 years.”

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. Schools selected must excel in the Four Distinctions: engaged students, great teaching, vibrant communities and successful outcomes. The colleges and universities are not ranked and instead are members of a consortium of other equally impressive schools. Iowa Wesleyan College is one of only eight colleges and universities in the State of Iowa to be awarded this honor.
