The University of Findlay (UF) has earned top rankings in U.S. News & World Report’s annual survey of “America’s Best Colleges.” This is the 9th consecutive year that UF has been listed in the top tier of regional universities in the Midwest. The survey also ranked UF 19th in the Midwest among regional universities in the Best Colleges for Veterans category and 164th in the nation for Best Online Bachelor’s Programs.
“Honors like these highlight the tremendous team effort our faculty and staff put forth each day,” said Dr. Katherine Fell, president of The University of Findlay. “In the end, it’s the opinions of our current and former students, parents and our community that are of highest importance to us.”
The annual rankings, in which U.S. News groups schools based on categories created by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, provide a resource for parents and students researching colleges and universities. The rankings give an overview of each school, including tuition, financial aid, and programs available.
Schools are ranked based on key measures of quality including peer assessment, graduation and retention rates, graduation rate performance, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources and alumni giving.
Using a proprietary methodology, the annual U.S. News and World Report rankings are developed to help consumers evaluate and compare data compiled from more than 1,600 accredited four-year schools.
The complete list of rankings will appear in the September issue of the U.S. News and World Report magazine, and is available online at www.usnews.com/colleges.
