Stonehill continues to be singled out by organizations involved in assessing U.S. colleges and universities including Princeton Review, Forbes and NPR as being among the best in the nation when it comes to value, outcomes and a commitment to making the world a better place.
The Princeton Review honors Stonehill as one of the nation’s best colleges for students seeking a superb education with great career preparation and a high return on investment price in it’s new book, 200 Colleges That Pay You Back.
When Money magazine analyzed 1,500 colleges and universities based on education quality, affordability, alumni earnings and graduation rates, Stonehill ranked in the top 10 percent and was selected for the magazine’s list of 736 colleges that provide the best value for your tuition cost. Stonehill earned its place on the list based on providing “a great education, at an affordable price, that helps students launch promising careers.”
ETC, a national clearinghouse of college and university data, examined 1,182 U.S. colleges and universities for workforce preparedness and employability and determined Stonehill’s outcomes record was strong enough to warrant being listed in the top 5 percent.
The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching has selected Stonehill as one of only 240 U.S. colleges and universities to qualify for the foundation's most recent Community Engagement Classification, which honors schools that have shown a strong commitment to engaging with local, regional, national and global communities.
Stonehill’s commitment to protecting the environment is reflected in initiatives that include numerous student clubs and organizations that promote environmental sustainability, as well as installation of a 2.7-megawatt solar field that generates roughly 20 percent of the electricity used by the College. Those efforts combined with dozens of others earned Stonehill inclusion in The Princeton Review’s Guide to 353 Green Colleges.
Stonehill College ranked No. 23 among small schools on the Peace Corps’ 2016 Top Volunteer-Producing Colleges and Universities list. There are eight Stonehill alumni currently volunteering worldwide.
