Anderson University is among the nation’s best colleges or universities—regardless of size or location—in how it interacts with its students, according to The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education 2022 U.S. College Rankings released today.  

Anderson University ranks 25 out of nearly 800 institutions in the United States for Best Student Engagement, the third year in a row AU has ranked in the top decile of all universities nationwide. The University ranked #27 in 2020 and #26 in 2021.

“The most important thing any university can do is connect with its students and mold them into the people they are called to be,” said President Evans P. Whitaker, Ph.D. “For that reason, I am immensely honored that Anderson University’s students recognize their college experience as joyful, purpose-driven and transformative. Everyone at AU, from our alumni and friends to our faculty and staff, places a great deal of importance on creating a culture where everyone is an insider, and no one feels like an outsider. To see that effort bear fruit in the lives of our students, and by the recognition of prestigious organizations, makes me incredibly proud.” 

In ranking student engagement, The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Educationconsiders how well a university “manages to inform, inspire and challenge students.” Its methodology also takes into account how connected students are to campus life; how enthusiastically they recommend their college or university; the quality of their interaction with faculty; and the number of accredited programs a university offers.
