New analysis puts UD among top institutions nationally
The University of Delaware ranks 148th among more than 800 institutions nationwide in the latest analysis by The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education.
The annual ranking recognized UD’s student-engagement efforts as being among the top 20% in the nation. In measuring engagement, the WSJ/THE survey considers the comments of students regarding their interactions with faculty, as well as the number of accredited programs offered by the institution.
“This ranking reflects what I see every day: Our students enjoy meaningful engagement with their professors and their classmates,” said President Dennis Assanis. “It is gratifying to see the hard work of our faculty and staff recognized in this way.”
The overall ranking also considers the University’s financial and human resources; the graduation rate and career outcomes of its alumni; and the learning environment of the campus.
This newest ranking joins a host of other distinctions achieved by the University, including recognition among “America’s Top Colleges” (Forbes), “Best Colleges for Your Money” (MONEY) and “Most Popular Study Abroad Programs” (The Princeton Review). Additional information about UD rankings is available on the University’s Institutional Research and Effectiveness website.
