Release Date: September 13, 2021

SOUTHFIELD—Lawrence Technological University continues to score high in the annual U.S. News & World Report survey of Best Colleges 2022 rankings.

Lawrence Tech is tied for 37th among 157 listed Midwest regional universities, in the top quarter of the rankings of schools in 12 states. LTU received the same ranking in the 2021 listings. The University has consistently ranked in the top 30 percent of Midwest universities over the past decade.

“The strong performance of our overall academic program in this prestigious national survey reflects our ongoing commitment to enhance the value of a Lawrence Tech degree,” said LTU President Virinder Moudgil. “It is gratifying to see that LTU’s unique ‘theory and practice’ approach to higher education is being recognized.”

U.S. News also placed Lawrence Tech No. 43 among the 157 Midwest universities on the list of “Top Colleges for Veterans,” which the magazine defined as schools that participate fully in federal initiatives helping veterans and active duty service members pay for their degrees. LTU also ranked No. 61 on the list of “Best Value Schools,” which lists universities on a combination of the net cost of attendance for a student including financial aid and the quality of the educational programs the university offers. Another point of pride is LTU’s continued ranking in the “Top Performers on Social Mobility” category. The University’s Engineering, Business, and Computer Science Programs were also recognized.

The rankings are available in the U.S. News Best Colleges 2021 Guidebook and online at https://www.usnews.com/best-colleges/rankings/regional-universities-midwest.

U.S. News said its rankings are based on “thoroughly vetted academic data from our surveys and reliable third-party sources,” including student retention rates, graduation rates, graduate indebtedness, assessments of academic quality by peer institutions, the student-faculty ratio, class sizes, test scores, and grades of incoming students, the level of alumni giving, and the strength of the faculty.

Lawrence Technological University, www.ltu.edu, is a private university founded in 1932 that offers more than 100 programs through the doctoral level in Colleges of Architecture and Design, Arts and Sciences, Engineering, and Management. The Brookings Institution ranks Lawrence Tech fifth nationwide for boosting graduates’ earning power, PayScale lists it among the nation’s top 100 universities for graduates’ salaries, and U.S. News and World Report places it in the top tier of best Midwestern universities. Students benefit from small class sizes and a real-world, hands-on, “theory and practice” education with an emphasis on leadership. Activities on Lawrence Tech’s 107-acre campus in Southfield, Michigan, include more than 100 student organizations and NAIA varsity sports.
