SALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University has been selected as a 2013-14 College of Distinction.
Salisbury was chosen for its “continued commitment” to the four distinctions, said founder Wes Creel. These include: engaged students, great teaching, vibrant communities and successful outcomes.
“I’m pleased that Salisbury University is again recognized among Colleges of Distinction nationwide,” said President Janet Dudley-Eshbach. “Opportunities for research and internships enrich our excellent academic program. Students earn prestigious honors, such as the Gates Cambridge Scholarship, and many choose to study abroad or volunteer in the local community. Award-winning faculty and staff also model excellence. Our reputation as A Maryland University of National Distinction continues to grow.”
Started over a decade ago, the Colleges of Distinction Web site helps young people, and their families and counselors, find campuses that are right for them. According to Creel, the institutions that are included “are the best places (for students) to learn, grow and succeed.”
SU is one of only three Maryland campuses recognized this year.
This year’s Colleges of Distinction e-Guidebook will be available to the public through Amazon.com. Over 52,000 counselors nationwide also will receive an electronic copy.
