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 10th consecutive year, U.S. News and World Report ranks St. Edward’s University as one of America’s Best Colleges. In the 2013 rankings, St. Edward’s moved up from number 21 to number 17 among Best Regional Universities in the Western region.
Congratulations to Alpha Sigma Lambda for being chosen as the University's Outstanding Honor Society of the year. This award is presented to the campus organization that promotes, stimulates, and maintains excellence in advancement of academics while promoting a higher standard of scholarship, honoring those achieving such a distinction, and recognizing academic excellence and leadership. Alpha Sigma Lambda's aim is to recognize the special achievements of adults who accomplish academic excellence while facing competing interests of home and work. The honor society is dedicated to the advancement of scholarship and recognizes high scholastic achievement in an adult student's career.
