The University of Redlands has again been recognized for its commitment to an engaged, experiential education by Colleges of Distinction, a guide for college-bound students. This and other positive rankings, listed below, are welcome news to Redlands – a private, premier liberal arts college and professional school with campuses located throughout California.
“This acknowledgment is especially rewarding in light of the challenges presented by COVID-19 during the 2020-2021 academic year,” said Steve Wuhs, interim dean of the University’s College of Arts & Sciences. “Clearly, it demonstrates our commitment to ensuring that each of our students ultimately achieves their personal, academic, and professional goals.”
Colleges of Distinction’s longstanding support for student-centered schools highlight those that traditional rankings sometimes overlook. One of its main goals is to draw attention to institutions, whose student-centered education prevails in applying theory to practice while fostering a dynamic learning community.
“Every student has their own unique set of abilities, their own goals, and their own ideal settings in which they would thrive,” said Colleges of Distinction Founder Wes Creel. “That’s why we don’t rank our schools. It’s about finding the best opportunities for each individual’s needs.”
The University of Redlands also received special recognition for its business, education, military support, equity and inclusion, and career development programs due to their comprehensive course material combined with practical and soft skills development.
