Trine ranked by U.S. News Media Group
Makes America's Best Colleges list
Trine University received its second ranking for excellence in less than a month in the category of Best Midwestern Baccalaureate Colleges in the 2010 edition of America’s Best Colleges by U.S. News Media Group.
The exclusive rankings include more than 1,400 schools nationwide, and will be published in the September issue of “U.S. News & World Report” magazine, on newsstands since Aug. 20.
Over the past 26 years, the U.S. News college rankings, which groups schools based on categories created by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, has become a research tool for students and parents considering higher education opportunities. The America’s Best Colleges ranking package, which includes editorial content and multimedia resources, has helped families navigate the decisions involved throughout the college process, from college admission and selection to financing options.
The 2010 America’s Best Colleges package provides a thorough examination of how more than 1,400 accredited four-year schools compare on a set of 15 widely accepted indicators of excellence. Among the many factors weighed in determining the rankings, the key measures of quality are peer assessment, graduation and retention rates, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources, alumni giving, and graduation rate performance among national universities and liberal arts colleges.
“These rankings underscore the success of our mission at Trine University to deliver a top-notch education in an enriched environment which prepares our students to succeed, lead, and serve,” said Trine University President Earl D. Brooks II. “That respected journalism and education service organizations recognize the excellence of a Trine University education demonstrates to the world that Trine has achieved a position of eminence among premier institutions of higher learning.”
