US News names Cornell in top 100 national liberal arts colleges

Now Indian institutes fall in QS graduate employability rankings

Bradley University slid down a spot in the US News & World Reports' ranking of best regional colleges, but it still landed in the top ten.

The university is now ranked at No. 83 among Best Colleges for Veterans, up seven spots from last year's ranking of No. 90.

Illinois State University has placed in the top 100 universities in the nation in recent years; placing 83 in the country this year. The rankings emphasize outcomes, with graduation and retention rates accounting for 30 percent of the score. In New Jersey, TCNJ ranked 1st among public colleges and universities, and 2nd overall. "Rankings such as this are one indication of progress being made toward better serving our constituents and fulfilling our college mission".

The regional universities category consists of schools that provide a full range of undergraduate majors and master's programs, but offer few, if any, doctoral programs.

Furman was ranked No. 13 in the category of "Most Innovative Schools", which is comprised of national liberal arts colleges that are making "cutting-edge changes" on their campuses.

Radford University was also recognized as a best regional public university. That represents a two-spot climb for RU.

Miami also ranked fifth for undergraduate teaching, meaning the faculty has an unusually strong commitment to undergraduate teaching.

The two most competitive schools in the UC system tied for the 21st spot in the 2018 national list, which is closely watched by schools and families.

The rankings are determined by graduation and retention rates, undergraduate academic reputation, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources and alumni giving rate.

Cody said those measures include graduation rates, affordability and student and alumni successes.

Thomas More College's rankings dropped again to 80 among regional universities in the South.

Among the Best Regional Universities in the South rankings, five private Christian colleges in SC were ranked including Columbia International University, BJU, Anderson University, North Greenville University and Charleston Southern University.

The top 10 spots in the rankings are majorly dominated by US Universities, with Stanford University at the first spot in the ranking. Politico argued recently that the US News & World ranking "create incentives for schools to favor wealthier students over less wealthy applicants".
