SFU Programs of DistinctionFour Saint Francis University programs are now sporting new “Field of Study” honor badges from the national Colleges of Distinctions organization.  

Saint Francis has been listed among the Colleges of Distinction for many years, yet in January the university was further recognized by this resource for excellent programming in four fields of study:  Business, Education, Engineering, and Nursing.

According to Distinctions Founder Wes Creel, Saint Francis continues to be an outstanding representation of the teaching-centered colleges that the organization believes provide the elements crucial for student development and effective undergraduate education.

“I am thrilled to acknowledge that in addition to such an impressive implementation of high-impact practices, Saint Francis University has enriched professional programs with a stellar foundation in the liberal arts. Saint Francis University not only engages competent future employees in Nursing, Engineering, Education, and Business, but also inspires them to be critical thinkers with unique, well-rounded insight,” shared Creel.

Colleges of Distinction’s new Field of Study badges were created in order to recognize colleges and universities for innovative leadership in higher education. Those who have received this honor have proved themselves after a comprehensive vetting for such qualities as accreditation, breadth of program, and track record for success.
