Monmouth's educational excellence makes it a 'College of Distinction'

Monmouth College has been honored as a College of Distinction for the 2013-2014 school year. The designation is given to select schools to honor their excellence in student-focused higher education.
 Schools selected must excel in the Four Distinctions: engaged students, great teaching, vibrant communities and successful outcomes. The colleges and universities are not ranked and instead are members of a consortium of other equally impressive schools.
“We focus on colleges that are the best places to learn, grow and succeed,” said Tyson Schritter, executive editor of Colleges of Distinction. “Schools designated as ‘Colleges of Distinction’ create well-rounded graduates and are among the very best in the country.”
