Walsh University Named a 2022-2023 College of Distinction

Walsh recognized for excelling in the areas of student engagement, teaching, community and successful outcomes in business, education, nursing, career development and military support.

Walsh University has been recognized for its honorable commitment to helping undergraduate students learn, grow and succeed by Colleges of Distinction, a unique guide for college-bound students. Walsh has been named a 2022-2023 College of Distinction, Ohio College of Distinction and a Catholic College of Distinction.

The Colleges of Distinction selection process comprises a sequence of in-depth research and detailed interviews with the schools, accepting only those that adhere to the Four Distinctions: Engaged Students, Great Teaching, Vibrant Community and Successful Outcomes. These principles are all informed by the High-Impact Practices to prioritize the ways that institutions enable students to have a fulfilling, individualized college experience both inside and outside the classroom. To earn the recognition, Walsh demonstrated the following programs and experiences:
Engaged Students – Students at Walsh University have the opportunity to take an active part in their own learning through the Cavs Cor Cordium, a first-in-the-nation initiative to put every student on campus in their own personal learning network.

Great Teaching – Students at Walsh University have meaningful interactions with faculty through first-year experiences, interdisciplinary collaborations and many of our undergraduate students participate in high-level research alongside faculty and industry professionals.

Vibrant Community – Creating connections with peers outside the classroom is an important part of a well-rounded college experience. To help students feel a sense of meaning and belonging throughout their campus experience, Walsh University offers service-based learning, living-learning communities and Enrichment Week, an opportunity for students and employees to take part in personal and professional development opportunities together in the fall.

Successful Outcomes – The undergraduate experience works cohesively to prepare students not only for graduation, but for life after graduation. Some of these experiences at Walsh University include externships, capstone projects and 100 percent participation in internships.

In addition to designations as College of Distinction, Ohio College of Distinction and Catholic College of Distinction, Walsh has received specialized recognition in Business, Education, Nursing, Career Development and Military Support.
