SUNY Brockport honored as 'College of Distinction'

SUNY College at Brockport is being featured on a website honoring schools for excellence in student-focused higher education.

The college earned a feature on, which honors colleges that are nominated by high school counselors and through quantitative research. Once nominated, colleges are assessed using four distinctions: student engagement, quality of teaching, vibrancy of the college community and success of graduates.

Brockport was found to excel in all four areas and will receive a personal profile on the Colleges of Distinction website, college officials said.

“Schools designated as ‘Colleges of Distinction’ create well-rounded graduates and are among the very best in the country,” said Tyson Schritter, executive editor of Colleges of Distinction. “While each school is one of a kind, they all share a common theme: they are all a great place to get an education.”

Kathryn Wilson, vice president for enrollment management and student affairs at SUNY Brockport, said the college is honored to be recognized among the most distinguished colleges and universities in the nation.

“Such recognition reaffirms the work that our students, faculty, and staff do on a daily basis—which is to develop, promote, and foster student success,” Wilson said.

Other colleges to be featured on include Hobart and William Smith Colleges, Houghton College and Roberts Wesleyan College.
