The University of Denver has maintained its place on the list of the top 100 national universities included in the U.S. News and World Report list of “Best Colleges 2014.”
For the second year in a row, U.S. News has ranked the University of Denver on its “Up-and-Coming” list, a category devoted to recognizing institutions that have recently made promising and innovative changes in areas of academics, faculty, student life, campus and facilities. The University moved from 13th place last year to the 10th position this year. It is tied with Purdue University, the University of Southern California and Portland State University.
“The rankings reflect an ongoing commitment to providing robust, relevant and rigorous programs for students,” Provost Gregg Kvistad said. He noted that the University also is benefitting from the addition of highly accomplished faculty members.
“University of Denver faculty members not only create a rich learning environment for our students, but they also enrich our campus through their research, scholarship and community involvement,” Kvistad said.
Overall the University is ranked 91 on the magazine’s list of national universities, tied with Colorado School of Mines, Florida State University, Auburn University, the University of Massachusetts-Amherst and the University of San Diego.
