National guide for colleges endorses schools for holistic professional education

For years, students across the country have known that they could turn to Colleges of Distinction as a one-of-a-kind resource to find the best-fit school for them. Part of what makes Colleges of Distinction unique is how it evaluates schools based on their ability to provide a high-quality student experience, as well as a thorough liberal arts education.

Already recognized by Colleges of Distinction for its innovative approach to education, Elmira College has been honored further for its expert blending of the liberal arts with professional programming in business, education, and nursing.

“It is an honor to be further recognized by Colleges of Distinction for excellence in these particular areas,” said Dr. Charles Lindsay, president of Elmira College.  “Professional education benefits from a foundation in core subject areas and a liberal arts curriculum promotes the skills employers are seeking - leadership, critical thinking, quantitative reasoning, and problem-solving.”

Elmira College’s future educators are bolstered by an enriching liberal arts perspective, allowing them to be empathetic, creative, and efficient mentors for their students. The College’s education programs include childhood special education, childhood education, and adolescence education.

The accredited nursing program at Elmira College has enabled its students to take calculated action, even in high-pressure situations. Their well-rounded perspective allows them to think on their feet and care deeply for their patients.  The Health Sciences Center in Cowles Hall provides state-of-the-art learning facilities simulating real-world experiences in the healthcare industry.

The fast-paced, modern world of business requires effective communication and innovative strategies. Elmira College’s specializations in management, marketing, international business, economics, and management accounting keep their future leaders ahead of the curve and ready to grow alongside the industry.

The 21st-century job market now demands employees who are both stellar communicators and critical-thinkers, and it is with Elmira College’s well-rounded approach to career development that its students are especially prepared to take on the postgraduate world.

“We are ecstatic to celebrate Elmira College for its exceptional commitment to student success,” said Tyson Schritter, Chief Operating Officer for Colleges of Distinction. “Building upon its extensive liberal arts curriculum, as well as its impressive engagement of high-impact practices, Elmira College continues to stand out through its stance as a leader in professional education.”

Elmira College’s new Field of Study badges are true marks of honor in the world of higher education. Colleges of Distinction granted these awards after a comprehensive vetting process, selecting schools based on such qualities as accreditation, breadth of program, and a track record for success.
