Nazareth College has been selected by The New American Colleges and Universities (NAC&U) to join the organization as its newest member. The New American Colleges and Universities is a national consortium of twenty selective, small to mid-size independent colleges and universities dedicated to the purposeful integration of liberal education, professional studies, and civic engagement.
President of Nazareth College Daan Braveman said “this invitation is a wonderful recognition of our achievements and reputation, and will create opportunities to work closely with other schools with similar missions”.
“Nazareth College is a model of what Ernest Boyer has called the ‘new American college,’ said Richard Guarasci, president of Wagner College and incoming NAC&U board chair. “While providing a strong foundation in liberal arts and sciences, Nazareth’s commitment to experiential and service learning prepares students for a lifetime of service and professional success. We are delighted to welcome these talented faculty, administrators, and students to our consortium."
Along with Nazareth College, Stetson University in Florida was also invited to join the organization. Stetson ranks among the top three regional universities in the south, and Nazareth is consistently in the top tier among regional universities in the north in US News and World Report, "America's Best Colleges" publication. Like their peers in the consortium, both were recently named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.
The New American Colleges and Universities was founded in 1995. To improve the quality and effectiveness of teaching and learning among its members, The New American Colleges and Universities sponsors projects and conferences, administrator and faculty affinity groups, surveys and data benchmarking, and international study programs. The New American Colleges and Universities collectively and individually are often cited as models of the intentional integration of teaching and learning, scholarship, and service.
