University of Findlay Named to Wall Street Journal’s College Rankings 2017
The University of Findlay has been named to the Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education College Rankings 2017. This marks the first time UF has made the list.
The rankings constitute a comparative assessment of more than 1,000 U.S. universities and colleges that are designed to give students and their families the information they need to choose where to study.
“Uniquely, it has at its heart the voices of 100,000 current American college students, collected through Times Higher Education’s annual U.S. Student Survey,” its website explains.
“We are honored to be included in this year’s Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education rankings, which recognizes our commitment to students, and the excellence of our faculty and staff,” said UF President Katherine Fell, Ph.D.
The rankings are made up of 14 individual performance indicators designed to answer the questions that matter the most to students and their families: Does the college have plenty of resources to teach me properly? Will I get enough access to my teacher, and will I be engaged and stretched in the classroom? Does the college have a good academic reputation? What type of campus community is there? How likely am I to graduate, pay off my loans and get a good job?
The College Rankings differ significantly from the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, which include only 148 U.S. institutions, and focuses heavily on research excellence and the teaching environment.
University of Findlay cultivates the potential within each student through academic excellence, transformative experiences and a supportive community. The University is known not only for science, health professions, animal science and equestrian studies programs, but also for cultivating the next generation of business leaders, educators and innovative thinkers through a dedication to experiential learning, both in and outside of the classroom.

With an international student population of nearly 600, Findlay’s campus offers global experiences to students from all over the world. In addition, our faculty and staff strive to create a supportive community in which our students grow and find their path to a meaningful life and productive career.
