WEST HAVEN, Conn., Sept. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- For the ninth year in a row, the University of New Haven has been ranked a top-tier university by U.S. News & World Report in its annual "Best Colleges" rankings. The University was also ranked in the publication's "best value" list of regional colleges in the north.
"Our continued improvement in this influential ranking is fueled by our high-achieving students who are driven to excel, and by our devoted faculty members, who continue to create innovative learning opportunities that challenge our students," said President Steven H. Kaplan. "We are proud to be recognized as a destination school where talented and determined students take charge of their learning," added President Kaplan.
In the 2019 edition, the University is ranked number 93 in the North region, which is one rank higher than its ranking in the previous year. Also, as part of the comprehensive rankings, the University's Tagliatela College of Engineering is again rated in the top third in its category. The University's College of Business, for the second year in a row, was ranked among the top 60 percent of more than 500 ranked business schools across the country.
For the first time in several years, the ranking's methodology was changed. Most notably, a new category measuring "social mobility" was added, which aims to factor a school's success at graduating Pell Grant recipients. This metric comprises five percent of the overall ranking.
This fall, the University, which last month was again recognized by The Princeton Review in its annual college rankings, welcomed its second-largest incoming class in its nearly 100-year history.
