Culver-Stockton College was named #1 in Missouri by Plexuss Global Rankings for its commitment to academic excellence in its 2021 publication.

It’s no secret that prospective students are utilizing the internet to narrow down their college search and over 7 million students use Plexuss global rankings as a starting point. This year, Plexuss has named C-SC to three separate rankings, all noting Culver-Stockton as a “Best in Missouri.” The three areas of study earning this prestigious ranking are: #1 Best in Missouri Offering Criminal Justice Programs, #7 Best in Missouri Offering Accounting Programs and #12 Best in Missouri Offering Legal Professions Programs.

Dr. Kim Gaither, Vice President for Enrollment Management at C-SC reflected, “Our hands-on curriculum gives students opportunities to practice real-world scenarios. The criminal justice faculty members join us with backgrounds in law enforcement as well as an attorney who has practiced criminal law. C-SC students gain skills that provide them a rich resume to elevate their degree to the next level of their field.”

Plexuss rankings are based on student demand and preferences. Plexxus offered “thousands of our students told us they wanted to be able to search rankings information intuitively and dynamically” which is how the ranking system was created. In addition, prospective students desired more in-depth rankings of the programs and institutions they were most likely to attend. In addition to student feedback, Plexuss rankings incorporate extensive input from education partners, data scientists, employers, parents, and high school counselors.

Culver-Stockton College is honored to receive this prestigious ranking and is committed to preparing students of promise for a dynamic world through our distinctive experiential curriculum within a supportive learning community.
