(Neb.)-CSC Receives National Recognition For Degree Programs
(Chadron)-Chadron State College was recently recognized for their varying options of programs for students. According to a list showing colleges and universities with the widest range of education degree programs, Chadron State College ranks 43rd nationally with 45 different programs available.
The “Top U.S. Colleges & Universities for Teaching” report was released by The College Database, a free, non-commercial website dedicated to providing current and future post-secondary students and their families with accurate and valuable college and career-related information.
The College Database news release states that the organization uses only the most highly respected, authoritative data sets from the federal government and the Carnegie Foundation. Their primary sources and partners include the NCES, which is the primary federal entity for collecting and analyzing data related to education; IPEDS, the primary federal source for data on colleges, universities, and technical and vocational postsecondary schools in the US; and the Carnegie Classification, a framework widely used in the study of higher education, both as a way to represent and control for institutional differences, and also in the design of research studies to ensure adequate representation of sampled institutions, students, or faculty.
Each year, IPEDS collects updated degree program data from U.S. colleges and universities, which includes program name and degree level awarded. The criteria that applies to The College Database’s program-related lists includes fully accredited colleges only, non-profit schools only, degree-granting institutions only, and number of degree programs designed to prepare students for careers in teaching, education administration, curriculum development, and student counseling.
Teresa Mullins Managing Director of Communication and Partnerships, offered a very well deserved ‘Congratulations’ to Chadron State College in a news release, and also a huge thank you for being a fantastic educational option for thousands of students.
