Harding University was selected from nearly 8,000 schools as the recipient of a Best Value School award by University Research and Review, a company dedicated to improving the process of how a student selects a postsecondary school.
The review committee for the award was made up of former university presidents, CEOs, provosts and professors. Schools earn the award through nomination and a committee evaluation process that analyzes accreditation, variety and quality of school programs, student satisfaction with the institution and cost.
“Harding has been able to maintain a much lower out-of-pocket expense while maintaining academics that are second to none,” said Glenn Dillard, assistant vice president for enrollment management. “Thousands of financial donors help to keep Harding affordable, while our faculty, who could earn more because of their specialized training and expertise, are here because they want to be — they love to teach.
“Value can be defined as ‘high quality at a fair price,’ and that well defines a Harding education.”
