Trinity Christian College named a 2022-2023 College of Distinction

Jun 22, 2022

The college is recognized for excelling in the areas of student engagement, teaching, community, and successful outcomes.

 Trinity Christian College has been recognized for its honorable commitment to helping undergraduate students learn, grow, and succeed by Colleges of Distinction, a unique guide for college-bound students. Trinity Christian College has been named a 2022-2023 College of Distinction, Illinois College of Distinction, and  Christian College of Distinction.

Colleges of Distinction believes that a thorough selection process requires more than an overview of institutional data, statistics, and size of endowment. Instead, the Colleges of Distinction selection process comprises a sequence of in-depth research and detailed interviews with the schools, accepting only those that adhere to the Four Distinctions: Engaged Students, Great Teaching, Vibrant Community, and Successful Outcomes. These principles are all informed by the High-Impact Practices to prioritize the ways that institutions enable students to have a fulfilling, individualized college experience both inside and outside of the classroom.

“When we focus all of our attention on how schools stack up against one another, we lose track of what really matters: the students themselves,” said Wes Creel, Founder of Colleges of Distinction. “Every student has individual needs and their own environment in which they are most likely to thrive. We want to extend our praise to the schools that prioritize and cater to students’ goals.” Trinity Christian College’s inclusion is informed by the unique ways it commits to achieving success. The effective strategies for student satisfaction and outcomes were the kinds of engaging experiences found at Trinity Christian College.

Creel continued, “We’re inspired by the ways in which Trinity Christian College immerses students in their fields, all while fostering a welcoming community that will support them through and beyond their college years.”

Aside from overall undergraduate recognitions, Colleges of Distinction also awards recognition in individual areas. Trinity Christian College has earned additional recognition in the areas of Business, Education, Nursing, Career Development.
