Christopher Newport University was again named a College of Distinction by a top national guide to colleges that highlights innovative learning opportunities at top schools.

The Colleges of Distinction guide is used by over 40,000 guidance counselors and thousands of parents and students across the country as they decide where to go to college. Christopher Newport was named a College of Distinction because of its variety and quality of high-impact student success initiatives.

To be named a College of Distinction, schools must demonstrate results across the Four Distinctions:

  • Engaged Students
  • Great Teaching
  • Vibrant Community
  • Successful Outcomes

High school counselors and educators make nominations, and each school is evaluated on key indicators, including student engagement, student empowerment and curricular innovation. Colleges that have distinguished themselves in each of the Four Distinctions and that have demonstrated dedication to enriching student outcomes through innovative learning opportunities are then invited to join Colleges of Distinction.

The annual process to select the nation’s Colleges of Distinction also includes a review of each institution’s freshman experience, as well as its general education program, strategic plan, and alumni success and satisfaction measures.
