MOSCOW, Idaho – A series of recent national rankings have some good news for the University of Idaho: its national reputation is on the rise – and it’s all adding up to a quality, affordable education with impact.
In the most recent rankings released early today by U.S. News & World Report, U-Idaho is ranked 160th out of 280 national universities in the magazine’s “America’s Best Colleges” guide. National universities offer a range of undergraduate majors, in addition to master’s and doctoral degrees, and some emphasize research, according to the magazine.
“While rankings are only one measure of the University of Idaho’s total student experience, we are gratified to see that our emphasis on creating a quality educational experience is being noticed not only in Idaho, but nationwide,” said university President M. Duane Nellis. “We’re the first choice for students who want to be at a place where they can succeed and lead.”
When looking only at public institutions in the U.S. News rankings, U-Idaho ranks 87th among national public universities. Also noted is U-Idaho’s higher proportion of undergraduate classes with less than 20 students, 45 percent, and fewer classes with more than 50 students, 10 percent. U-Idaho also has a low student-to-faculty ratio –18:1 – which reflects the type of small, dedicated learning environment for students for which U-Idaho is known.
