Catawba College News Service

SALISBURY — Catawba College has been recognized by Colleges of Distinction for blending liberal arts studies with professional programming in business and education.

In a 21st-century job market that demands that employees be both good communicators and critical thinkers, Catawba was recognized for a well-rounded approach to career development that helps students prepare to take on the postgraduate world.

“We are ecstatic to celebrate Catawba 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, Catawba continues to stand out through its stance as a leader in professional education.”

Colleges of Distinction has recognized schools throughout the U.S. for excellence in undergraduate-focused higher education for more than 15 years.

Catawba College’s new field of study badges were granted after a vetting process to select schools based on such qualities as accreditation, breadth of program, and a track record for success.

The award for education noted that Catawba’s future educators are bolstered by an enriching liberal arts perspective, allowing them to be creative and efficient mentors for their students.

The award for business said Catawba’s Ketner School of Business keeps students ahead of the curve in effective communication and innovative strategies.
