U.S. News & World Report has released its 2022-23 Best College rankings and three universities in Indiana are among the top 100 national universities. A total of 1,500 colleges and universities are ranked this year based on 17 metrics.
The publication ranks the institutions in several categories: national universities, national liberal arts colleges, regional colleges and regional universities.
The University of Notre Dame comes in at number 18, Purdue University is ranked 51st, and Indiana University is number 73 among both public and private national universities that offer undergraduate, masters and doctoral degrees.
Butler University in Indiana retained the top ranking among Midwest regional universities. Taylor University in Upland is ranked number two among Midwest regional colleges.
U.S. News also provides rankings among a variety of sub-categories, such as best engineering, best agricultural, and best business schools.
Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology has kept its top ranking as the top engineering college that offers bachelor’s- and master’s-level degrees.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic’s impact on standardized testing in 2020, U.S. News did not use SAT/ACT scores to calculate a school’s rank if they reported scores for less than 50% of new entrants in consecutive years. The publication put more weight on two other ranking factors – average graduation rate and high school class standing.
The top three national universities are Princeton, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Harvard.
