Northwest Nazarene University is now featured on CollegesofDistinction.com, a website dedicated to honoring schools nationwide for their excellence in student-focused higher education.
NNU President Dr. David Alexander said, “At Northwest Nazarene University, we focus on the whole person—heart, soul, mind and strength. We strive to be a transformative learning community, educating for the life God intends.”
Colleges and universities are nominated for participation in Colleges of Distinction™ through high school counselors’ recommendations as well as quantitative research. Once nominated, the colleges are assessed using the Four Distinctions: student engagement, quality of teaching, vibrancy of the college community and success of graduates. Schools featured on CollegesofDistinction.com must meet minimum standards in each category.
Northwest Nazarene University was found to excel in all four distinctions and will receive a personal profile on the Colleges of Distinction™ website.
“Schools designated as “Colleges of Distinction” create well-rounded graduates and are among the very best in the country,” said Tyson Schritter, Executive Editor of Colleges of Distinction™.
CollegeofDistinction.com offers dynamic college profiles and easy-to-use search tools for students, parents and counselors. The website includes tips from high school guidance counselors as well as essays from college students, presidents, and other members of campus communities.
