A local university has received recognition for the quality of their professors.
Hollins University is among the country’s “25 Colleges with the Best Professors,” according to The Center for College Affordability and Productivity (CCAP). The university also received this recognition in 2010.
According to a news release, rankings were based on evaluations found at RateMyProfessors.com. CBS Moneywatch reports, “The center generated its list by looking at the composite teaching scores that schools received via RateMyProfessors. The website has captured more than 15 million student ratings of college professors from schools across the country.”
Hollins is featured along with some of the nation’s most prestigious institutions, including the United States Military Academy, Carleton College, and Sewanee – The University of the South. In addition to Hollins, three other single-sex colleges are on the list (Wellesley College, Bryn Mawr College, and Wabash College). “Single-sex colleges routinely get high marks from their graduates,” CBS Moneywatch notes.
