The Benefits of Christian Higher Education
I looked at the data at the recent annual meeting of CCCU presidents in Washington, D.C.
Comparing the experience of our CCCU students with those at other four-year private institutions is eye-opening.
72% of CCCU students report that their school shows concern for them as individuals compared to only 56% at other private schools. 74% believe the "faculty care about me as an individual."
Overall, 68% of students at CCCU schools are satisfied with their education experience. This compares to 56% at other private campuses.
Add this to other measures, including that CCCU students have higher graduation rates and loan repayment records, and you must conclude Christian higher education is doing a great job. And student benefits are both worldly and heavenly.
