Best CCCU Colleges and Universities

What are CCCU Colleges and Universities?

The Council of Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) is an organization composed of about 180 member institutions worldwide, with approximately 140 in the U.S. The schools represent 37 different Protestant denominations.

CCCU schools are accredited, comprehensive colleges and universities whose missions are Christ-centered and rooted in the historic Christian faith. Although many self-identify as evangelical, the defining doctrines for all member institutions are that they:

  • Integrate what they regard as biblical truth not just into “spiritual” aspects of the institution but throughout the academic enterprise. Their faculty are committed to God as the author of truth, a belief that has implications for every academic discipline.
  • Commit to the moral and spiritual formation of students. They seek to form students whose moral commitment will be to live out Christian virtues such as love, courage, and humility.
  • Seek to graduate students “who make a difference for the common good as redemptive voices in the world.” They regard their graduates as “hopeful realists” who can “play a redemptive and restorative role in the world as doctors, teachers, marketers, engineers, parents, soccer coaches, and in a host of other ways.”

Many of the nation’s leading private colleges and universities had their origins as religious institutions affiliated with a specific denomination within the broad Christian tradition. Duke is an example, as are Emory, Yale, and Wesleyan University. And while some private schools still accept funding from the church of their founding, many no longer hold any religious expectations for their students, nor do they align their curricular or extracurricular offerings with particular religious beliefs or practices.

In contrast, CCCU colleges are devoted to fostering Christian virtues in their graduates. They develop their curricula, their expectations for student behavior, their hiring of faculty and staff, and their co-curricular programs with that goal in mind. Most do so within the context of a liberal arts framework.

The list of colleges which follows ranks the Best CCCU colleges for undergraduates, those schools which have retained their Christian orientation while achieving academic excellence and conveying profound influence through the achievements of their professors and graduates.

How do we determine the best CCCU schools?

The best colleges pound for pound!

The people affiliated with a school are ultimately what make it great. This is why, at the undergraduate level, we rank the best colleges and universities based on what we call Concentrated Influence. Concentrated Influence takes the combined influence score of a college or university’s top academic influencers (including faculty and alums) and divides it by the school’s total number of undergraduates.

Using concentrated influence gives small and mid-sized schools an opportunity to shine by taking away the size advantage of larger universities. A small school with proportionately more influential faculty than a large school, whose influence in absolute terms may be bigger, will nonetheless score higher in a concentrated influence ranking. Our approach highlights undergraduate schools that truly rank for excellence, regardless of size.

If you are serious about finding the best colleges and universities for a bachelor’s degree, you should be asking where the most influential professors are teaching and whether their graduates are themselves advancing the school’s reputation for academic excellence.

Most ranking sites rely on an opaque combination of reputation surveys and arbitrary performance metrics. Concentrated Influence provides a ranking that is free from bias, insulated from manipulation, and reflective of real-world educational outcomes.
