SU Again Named Among 'Colleges of Distinction'

Colleges of DistinctionSALISBURY, 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.

For the 15th consecutive year, SU also is among The Princeton Review’s Best 378 Colleges. In addition, the campus is consistently one of Kiplinger’s Top 100 “Best Values” in public colleges.  Last fall, for the 16th consecutive year, SU was named one of U.S. News & World Report’s Top Public Regional Universities in the North.  

This year’s Colleges of Distinction e-Guidebook will be available to the public through Over 52,000 counselors nationwide also will receive an electronic copy.
