UD Highest Ranked DFW Institution by US News, 13th among West Region Universities

 

U.S. News & World Report's 2015 rankings of the nation's best colleges are out and the University of Dallas is the highest ranked institution in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. Ranked number 13 among 120 institutions categorized as "regional universities" in the West, this year's ranking places the university first in the metroplex, second among Texas' 33 other ranked regional universities and seventh among all Catholic institutions in the West region. The region consists of 15 western states, including California, Colorado and Texas.

In addition to naming the University of Dallas one of America's Best Colleges, U.S. News & World Report recognized the university as one of eight "Best Value Schools" in the West region.

"We are pleased and honored to once again be identified as one of the country's top universities. Rankings like these are the direct result of a tremendous amount of hard work and dedication from our students, faculty and staff, and our unrelenting commitment to providing the very best academic experience," said University of Dallas President Thomas W. Keefe.

Since July, the University of Dallas has received multiple prestigious distinctions, including being named one of the country's best institutions for undergraduate education by The Princeton Review and one of "America's Best Colleges" by Forbes.

Over the past two decades, the U.S. News & World Report college rankings, which groups schools based on categories created by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, has grown to be the one of the most comprehensive research tools for students and parents considering higher education opportunities.
