Anderson University climbed six spots to #16 among regional colleges in The South in the newly released U.S. News & World Report rankings.
In addition, Anderson was named the #2 regional college in The South for innovation. The recognition for the most innovative schools in the country was previously called the “Up and Coming” list by the publication. In the past five years, Anderson University has been ranked among the most innovative universities each year.
“We’re very pleased to see our continuous quality improvement progress recognized with our highest ranking ever,” said AU spokesperson Barry Ray on behalf of the university. “To move up six spots to #16 and be solidly among the top 20 in the South is most gratifying. Our president reminds us yearly that the hard work we put in on behalf of our students is for them and we don’t do what we do for the sake of rankings, but the work being done by our faculty, staff and students should raise the profile of our institution and that’s clearly happening.”
“We are also pleased to see our ranking of #2 in the South among regional colleges for innovation,” Ray said. “We feel it demonstrates the effectiveness of the groundbreaking Mobile Learning Initiative we launched some five years ago.
