Princeton, William Universities Among Best In US
The rankings covered 1,500 universities and used 19 measures of academic quality
US News & World Report has released 2024 college rankings featuring various prestigious institutions. Princeton University has been ranked the best in the US.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is ranked second while Harvard and Stanford Universities jointly shared the third spot in the category of best national universities. William University topped the list of best liberal arts colleges. Amherst College was ranked second and the United States Naval Academy was ranked third.
“This year’s rankings placed a greater emphasis on social mobility and outcomes for graduating college students, demonstrating the most significant methodological change in the rankings’ history. More than 50 per cent of an institution’s rank now comprises varying outcome measures related to success in enrolling and graduating students from all backgrounds with manageable debt and post-graduate success. In addition, five factors were removed: class size, faculty with terminal degrees, alumni giving, high school class standing and the proportion of graduates who borrow federal loans,” a press release by US News stated.
The rankings covered 1,500 universities and used 19 measures of academic quality.
