Albertus Magnus College, a four-year, independent, liberal arts, coeducational college located in New Haven, CT, has been named one of the 50 most technologically advanced small colleges in the U.S. by BestCollegesOnline.org.
The ranking was created using key factors about each school such as awards won related to technology, progressive science/tech degrees offered, and advanced on-campus technology offerings. The editors of the rankings noted Albertus Magnus College’s state-of-the-art laboratories in The Tagliatela Academic Center for Science, Art and Technology, and its numerous degree offerings in the science and technology fields.
“We are gratified by this recognition. For us, technology is not an end but a means. It broadens our ability to connect with students and to expand our use of active learning strategies that promote student engagement and success,” said Dr. Sean P. O'Connell, vice president for Academic Affairs.
Steven Gstalder, vice president for Information Technology Services commented, “Albertus is known for its small classes taught by dedicated faculty who work closely with students, and our blended and online courses are taught with the same approach, by the same faculty. At Albertus, we use technology to give online students an equivalent experience to what our students enjoy in the classroom. With our Flex programs, students can choose whether they would like a fully online experience or take some courses in a blended format combining an online experience with in-person instruction.”
