“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™. Colleges and universities are nominated for participation in Colleges of Distinction™ through high school counselors’ recommendations as well as quantitative research.
Once nominated, 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. Mount Mercy was found to excel in all Four Distinctions and will receive a personal profile on the Colleges of Distinction™ website.
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, essays from college students, presidents and other members of campus communities.
