St. Edward's University New College Program Focuses on Helping Adult Students

St. Edward's University recently joined the Coalition of Adult Learning Focused Institutions (ALFI).  Colleges and universities in the Coalition strive continuously to improve their programs and services for adult students, assess their adult degree programs regularly, and share “best practices” for adult learners with other Coalition members.


For the twelfth consecutive year, St. Edward’s University was recognized by U.S. News and World Report as one of America’s Best Colleges, moving up two spots to #13 in the 2015 Best Regional Universities West region rankings. St. Edward’s is one of only four Texas universities to be ranked in the top 20 in the Best Regional Universities rankings. Additionally, St. Edward’s was ranked #2 in the West region in the Best Colleges for Veterans rankings.
