The rankings in USNWR’s “Best Colleges” listings were released Monday. TROY was also named to the Best Regional Universities in the South list, the Top Performers on Social Mobility list, and was ranked in the top 15 of the Most Innovative Schools list.
U.S. News and World Report determines its Best Colleges listings by using indicators in a variety of categories, including graduation and first-year student retention rates, assessment by administrators at peer institutions, faculty resources, admissions selectivity, financial resources, alumni giving and graduation rate performance. Data was also collected from the Council for Aid to Education and the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics. In all, data was gathered about more than 1,800 U.S. colleges and universities.
“U.S. News and World Report’s recognition of TROY reflects our commitment to excellence and confirms what we and our alumni have known for years: Troy University prepares its students to be successful on a global stage,” said Chancellor Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr.
Last month, the University was named by The Princeton Review as among the best colleges and universities in the southeastern United States for the 15th straight year.
