Annual rankings were released today by U.S.News and World Report showing that Corban moved up three places from 8th to 5th in the WEST Region. The newly named Best Baccalaureate Colleges section for Corban shows how the top tier institutions ranked.
In the Best Value listings Corban is 5th Best Value in the West (4th last year).
Although the category was renamed from Comprehensive Colleges to Best Baccalaureate Colleges, the criteria is the same: "Primarily Undergraduate, less than 50% of degrees in the liberal arts". Many colleges were moved as a result of changes in the Carnegie Classifications this past year.
"The improvement in the ranking is encouraging, but we recognize that this is only one measurement of how well a college performs its job of educating students," says President Reno Hoff. "For example, students should also consider whether a particular college or university is the best fit for them; the reputation of individual academic programs and professors; the campus environment; facilities; and services provided to students."
#1 in the West for the Baccalaureate category is the U.S. Air Force Academy. This is the first year military academies have been ranked and all took the top place in their respective categories.
Another milestone has been reached at Corban for which we are thankful.
