We take strong academic programs, add bright minds, stir things up a bit, and serve the world. We’re uncommonly good at it. Consider what others are saying about Defiance College: Defiance is featured for excellence in blending academics with community work by The Princeton Review in its Colleges with a Conscience: 81 Great Schools with Outstanding Community Involvement.

Colleges of Distinction’s guide selected

Defiance for exhibiting the four distinctions that make a college outstanding: engaged students, great teaching, a vibrant community, and successful outcomes. Defiance is included in the President’s

Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, recognized for

exemplary service efforts and service to disadvantaged youth.

“Defiance College promotes an atmosphere of enthusiasm and excitement for in-depth learning, experiencing new things, and rising to new challenges. There are so many unique opportunities to experience and ways to get active on campus.”

Small Honors Program gives students of any major the opportunity to enrich their education with honors courses, participation in honors symposia, and international travel; and Defiance College’s Service Leadership Program develops skills of leadership, communication, conflict resolution, and cultural awareness.

“I really like the small classes and the one-on-one interaction. It’s a lot better than sitting in a class with 200 people. The professors take the time to really care about you as an individual. They grade your paper and then talk it over with you to make sure you’re on the right track.”


The Hench Autism Studies Program presents students with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to act as peer mentors to teenagers with autism. This program gives Defiance students valuable lessons and amazing insight into the challenges faced by individuals with autism.

Practical experience that Defiance

students gain from internships, service projects, and leadership opportunities both home and abroad pack resumes with exactly the sort of job skills employers want most.
