Truman Among Select Group of Schools Recognized by Colleges of Distinction

Truman is the only Missouri school recognized this year by Colleges of Distinction in the Public Colleges of Distinction eGuidebook.

Being designated as a Public College of Distinction tells students, parents and counselors that a school is recognized as one of the most teaching-centered and engaging public colleges in the country. Schools on the list are typically celebrated for their diversity of majors, large and varied student communities and pocketbook-friendly tuition.

To be selected as a College of Distinction, a school must excel at four distinctions: engaged students; great teaching; vibrant community; and successful outcomes.

According to its website, Colleges of Distinction examines “schools that take a holistic approach to admissions decisions, that consistently excel in providing undergraduate education, and that have a truly national reputation.”

Truman is among only 37 schools nationally to be included in the 2012-2013 eGuidebook, which will be available in January through Amazon, the iBookstore, and Barnes and Noble’s nook bookstore.
