Denison ranked #1 in student-teacher interaction

November 9, 2023

Denison has been named the top university for student-teacher interaction in a survey of more than 120,000 students around the world.

The 2023 Global Student Satisfaction Awards, which highlight global and regional trends in what students value most in education, awarded Denison the top prize in the category that asked: “How helpful, engaged, and interested were your teachers with you?”

Other finalists in the category included the University of Chemistry and Technology Prague and Malaysia’s Mara Technological University.

“​​Winning this award is very gratifying, because we are hearing directly from students,” said Katy Crossley-Frolick, executive director of Denison’s Center for Global Programs, in accepting the award. “And it means we are doing a lot of things right in terms of making them feel like they are part of a larger community of learning, where they make connections with their peers, where they discover their passions, and — as we like to say here on The Hill — unlock their potential.”

Overall, 577 universities participated in the awards, which require at least 30 reviews from current students or recent alums of the institution.

The Global Student Satisfaction Awards — hosted by Studyportals, with partners Unibuddy and British Council IELTS, and media partners Times Higher Education and PIE News — rate higher education institutions in 126 countries based on reviews from domestic and international students from over 200 different nationalities.

The awards, which started over a decade ago, are held every two years.
