Franklin College announced it continues to climb in the college and university rankings game, based on the recently released 2019 U.S. News and World Report Best College Rankings Report.
“Since 2017, the college has competed in The National Liberal Arts Colleges category, an important step for the college in positioning it with critical competitors,” said Franklin College President Thomas J. Minar, Ph.D. “Last year, the college made an extraordinary increase of 16 spots in its ranking, and this year we’ve advanced another four spots. This is worthy of celebration.”
“I am thrilled that Franklin College continues to be recognized as one of the best liberal arts colleges in the nation,” said Franklin College Provost, Lori Schroeder, Ph.D. “The consistent improvement in our ranking each year is reflective of the innovative, forward-thinking transformation taking place in our curriculum’s unique blending of liberal arts and career-focused education.”
U.S. News and World Report describes the schools in The National Liberal Arts Colleges category as those that emphasize undergraduate education and award at least half of their degrees in the liberal arts fields of study. The rankings also considered factors such as freshman retention rates, acceptance rates and faculty-to-student ratios.
