Salisbury Rising 2019: SU achieves top ranking from U.S. News

U.S. News & World Report today named Salisbury University one of its Best Colleges for 2020.

“SU’s continued standing among the U.S. News rankings is a validation of our efforts to provide an outstanding educational experience in which dedicated and knowledgeable faculty and staff support student success,” said SU Provost and Senior Vice President of Academic Affairs Karen Olmstead.

The 558 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 75th in the top tier among 170 publics and privates, and 47th among the north’s “Best Value Schools.”

SU also once again made the publication’s list of “A+ Schools for B Students” and “Best Colleges for Veterans.”

U.S. News uses several criteria to measure academic quality including student outcomes, faculty resources, financial resources, student excellence, standardized test scores, high school class standing among first-year students, alumni giving, and assessments from peer institutions and high school counselors.

Other publications also have taken note of what SU has to offer. This summer, SU was again named among The Best 385 Colleges by The Princeton Review, “America’s Best Colleges” by Forbes, “The Best Colleges for Your Money” by Money magazine, “Best Public College Values” by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance and a “Best Bang for the Buck” college by Washington Monthly.
