Troy University has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the best and most innovative universities in the South.
TROY was one of only 134 schools ranked in the publication’s 2021 Best Regional Universities South list, and was among the top 20 Most Innovative Universities South ranking.
“This recognition from U.S. News & World Report is evidence of the commitment Troy University has made to serving students and preparing them to be both globally aware and globally competitive,” said Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr., Chancellor. “Innovation is woven into the very fabric that makes up Troy University, and we believe those efforts pay great dividends for our students.”
TROY was also recognized in the publication’s Best Value rankings among regional universities in the south, as well as a Best College for Veterans.
U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges rankings, now in their 36th year, assess 1,452 U.S. bachelor’s degree-granting institutions on 17 measures of academic quality, including graduation and first-year student retention rates, faculty resources, student-faculty ratio, financial aid and student debt. Demographic and campus life data also are collected as part of the ranking process.
The recognition by U.S. News & World Report is just the most recent ranking to include the University. In August, TROY was ranked among The Princeton Review’s Best of the Southeast for the 16th consecutive year, and earlier this year, U.S. News recognized several of the University’s degree programs among the nation’s best.
