'U.S. News & World Report' Again Recognizes SU Among Nation's 'Best Colleges'

By SU Public Relations

SALISBURY, MD---U.S. News & World Report again has named Salisbury University among the nation’s “Best Colleges.”

The nearly 600 institutions in U.S. News’ “Best Regional Universities” category are split among four geographic areas — North, South, Midwest and West. In the northern region, SU ranked 54th in the top tier among 175 publics and privates, 27th among the north’s “Best Value Schools” and 18th among the region’s “Top Public Schools.”

SU also once again made the publication’s list of “Best Colleges for Veterans.” In addition, Salisbury was recognized as one of the “Top Performers on Social Mobility” and for having one of the “Best Bachelor of Science in Nursing Programs.”

“At Salisbury, we pave the way for success by putting students first,” said SU President Carolyn Ringer Lepre. “We work diligently to ensure that our students — and, by extension, our faculty, staff and administrators — have the tools, infrastructure and opportunity they need to achieve their goals in the classroom and beyond. Our continued upward trend in U.S. News & World Report’s college rankings demonstrate what most of our students and alumni already know: Salisbury University is the best place to Make Tomorrow Yours.”

U.S. News uses several criteria to measure academic quality including student outcomes, faculty resources, financial resources, student excellence, social mobility, success in graduating students from diverse backgrounds, and assessments from peer institutions and high school counselors.

Other publications also have taken note of what SU has to offer. In recent months, SU was named among The Best 389 Colleges for the 25th consecutive year by The Princeton Review and one of “The Best Colleges in America” by Money. The Princeton Review also ranked SU’s Patricia R. Guerrieri Academic Commons a top 10 “Best College Library” in the U.S.
