JEFFERSON CITY — Carson-Newman University has been named again a “College of Distinction” and a “Christian College of Distinction” for 2016-2017. It is the third consecutive year the university has received the honor.
Carson-Newman is one of a select group of colleges deemed to demonstrate results across the organization’s Four Distinctions — engaged students, great teaching, vibrant community, and successful outcomes.
“To be recognized for both our distinction in higher education and championed as a Christian university is always an honor,” said Paul Percy, Carson-Newman’s provost. “The distinction belongs to our faculty and staff who make our university such a special place for students to find their calling in life.”
High school college counselors and educators nominate colleges and universities for recognition by Colleges of Distinction, which then evaluates each school based on qualitative and quantitative research.
