For 10 years running, Corban University has earned its place as one of the best colleges by U.S. News & World Report.

On Tuesday, Sept. 13, 2011, the magazine released its 2012 rankings and once again ranked Corban University fifth in the best colleges in the west category. The results were released in the magazine’s “2012 Best Colleges” issue. The distinction also puts Corban University as the top ranked Christian college in the Pacific Northwest.

“The fact that Corban has achieved top rankings over the last 10 years shows Corban’s commitment to offering a quality education,” said Dr. Matt Lucas, Corban University’s provost and executive vice president. “We strive to be student centered, working to meet the educational, financial, social and spiritual needs of our students. Corban also continues to expand its teaching faculty and the resources needed to make the classroom experience as beneficial as possible.”

Additionally, Corban University was ranked sixth in the west for value based on academic quality and cost of attendance.

In August, Corban was named a “Best in the West” university by the Princeton Review.
U.S. News & World Report ranks colleges according to the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. Its Best Regional College classification focuses on colleges offering a broad range of liberal arts programs.
