Cornell scores in top 10 for best faculty interactions with students

Times Higher Education (THE) recently released a report in which Cornell College was listed in the top 10 for best faculty interactions with students.

The list was a result of responses from its 2019 U.S. Student Survey, which the organization uses to determine college rankings. The survey asked students about opportunities to interact with faculty.

According to the article, “Students had to give their university a rating of 0–10 in response to the following question: To what extent do you have the opportunity to interact with the faculty and teachers at your college or university as part of your learning experience? Examples of interaction could include asking questions during lectures, participating in discussion sessions, talking about your progress in feedback sessions or working with the faculty on activities other than course work such as term papers.”

THE also mentions that many institutions on the list were private, liberal arts colleges.
