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. For a complete list
