HIGH POINT, N.C., July 26, 2018 – For the eighth consecutive year, High Point University has been named to the Colleges of Distinction. It is a unique college guide that honors institutions with an innovative, teacher-centered undergraduate education and a strong record of preparing graduates for real-world success.
The 2018-19 Colleges of Distinction list is based upon exemplary commitment to four distinctions: engaged students, great teaching, vibrant communities and successful outcomes, all of which reflect HPU’s values-based, holistic education model. HPU was also recognized for its education and business programs in the Stout School of Education and Earl N. Phillips School of Business.
HPU is preparing graduates to lead lives of significance. In recent studies, 96 percent of recent graduates find employment and graduate school placement within six months of graduation.
“At High Point University we focus on preparing our students not for the world as it is, but for the world as it is going to be,” says HPU President Dr. Nido Qubein, “We will continue to equip students with life skills, which distinguish our graduates and provide them with a competitive edge. We are appreciative of this recognition and for the HPU families, alumni and friends who have faithfully and continuously supported our holistic approach.”
