Lycoming College earns national recognition as College of Distinction
Williamsport, PA – Innovative and high impact educational practices earned Lycoming College placement among the nation’s Colleges of Distinction.
Lycoming College students earned college credit and valuable life experience while participating in study abroad programs in more than a dozen countries, as well as through community service projects, research and internships.
To be selected for the nation’s Colleges of Distinction, schools must demonstrate results across four distinctions — engaged students, great teaching, vibrant community and successful outcomes.
High school counselors and educators make nominations, and each school is evaluated on key indicators including student engagement, student empowerment and curricular innovation.
Colleges that have distinguished themselves in each of the four distinctions and demonstrated dedication to enriching student outcomes through innovative learning opportunities are then invited to join Colleges of Distinction.
The annual process also includes a review of each institution’s freshman experience, as well as its general education program, strategic plan, and alumni success and satisfaction measures.
