'U.S. News' Names SU Among 'Best Colleges'
SALISBURY, MD---U.S. News & World Report has named Salisbury University one of its Best Colleges for 2014.
“Our award-winning faculty and dedicated staff help attract, teach and support outstanding students,” said Dr. Diane Allen, SU provost and senior vice president of academic affairs. “Rankings like these are a tribute to their hard work.”
The 621 universities in the Best Regional Universities category are split among four geographic areas—North, South, Midwest and West. In the northern region, SU ranked 66 among 182 publics and privates.
U.S. News uses several criteria to measure academic quality including academic reputation, graduation and retention rates, financial resources, faculty resources, student selectivity and alumni giving.
Last month, The Princeton Review named SU one of its Best 378 Colleges for the 15th consecutive year.
The Princeton Review’s list is compiled through a combination of statistical analysis, campus visits and student surveys. Its rankings represent the top 15 percent of colleges and universities, both public and private, in the nation.
Kiplinger’s Personal Finance also has named SU among its Top 100 “Best Values in Public Colleges” for the sixth consecutive year.
