Spring Hill College recently received national recognition for the integrity of its truly individualized and engaging education. As an institution whose primary goals are based on student success and satisfaction, Spring Hill is proud of its honor as one of the renowned Colleges of Distinction – and one of only four schools to be recognized in the State of Alabama.
The recognition is given for, among other things, the engaged and vibrant campus community, successful student outcomes and the Jesuit tradition of cura personalis, that is, care for the whole person, body, mind and spirit. Spring Hill also received distinction awards on the Business and Nursing departments as well as the Career Development program.
“We continue to receive this distinction year after year and I know it’s because of how hard our faculty and staff work to bring innovation and Jesuit values in our classrooms and college community,” said President E. Joseph Lee II, PhD.
This award is unique among popular college guide classifications in that Spring Hill earned its recognition for the excellence exhibited in the classroom and incorporating high-impact practices throughout every student’s undergraduate education. Such student-centered programs include first-year seminars, community-based learning programs, service-learning programs, capstone projects, study abroad programs, exclusively online continuing studies and internships.
“We are so proud to see Spring Hill walking the walk,” said Tyson Schritter, Chief Operating Officer for Colleges of Distinction. “Colleges of Distinction knows that a truly valuable education can’t be measured by rank or reputation. Students learn and thrive best when they embrace hands-on learning in a vibrant, welcoming community.”
