Released: 3/13/12

The College of Education was ranked 79 among programs nationwide on the 2013 U.S. News & World Report list of best graduate schools. This ranking is up from 91 in 2012.

"It’s always gratifying to ascend in these national ratings even though the College hasn’t set that goal as its highest priority," remarks College Dean Bill Henk. "Ideally our new ranking reflects a recognition of our unwavering commitment to excellence in teaching, research, and service in the finest Catholic, Jesuit tradition."

The 2013 list includes essential, detailed statistical information and scores in categories that include assessment by peers and superintendents, student selectivity, faculty resources and research activity.

Topping the 2013 list are Vanderbilt University, Harvard University, and the University of Texas at Austin followed by Stanford University and Teachers College-Columbia University.
