Assumption University was recognized by Colleges of Distinction for its steadfast commitment to supporting undergraduate students’ efforts to learn, grow, and succeed. Specifically, Assumption was named a 2022-2023 College of Distinction, Massachusetts College of Distinction, and a Catholic and Military Support Distinction. Additionally, Colleges of Distinction recognized the University’s business and education programs. 

Colleges of Distinction is a resource for high school and college transfer students researching their higher education options. 

According to Colleges of Distinction, it believes that a thorough selection process requires more than an overview of institutional data, statistics, and the size of endowment. The higher education information resource states that their 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. 

Colleges of Distinction reports that Assumption demonstrated excellence in the four areas, including through the following:

“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’re most likely to thrive. We want to extend our praise to the schools that prioritize and cater to students’ goals.”

Creel continued, “We’re inspired by the ways in which Assumption University 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. Assumption earned additional recognition of its education and business academic programs.
