Lawrence Technological University has moved up in the rankings of “Midwest Regional Universities” according to the annual U.S. News & World Report survey of best colleges for 2018.
Lawrence Tech was tied for 38th among 165 listed Midwest regional universities, the magazine’s rankings said, in the top quarter of the rankings of schools in 12 states. That’s up from 40th last year and 54th the year before that.
“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 that LTU’s efforts are being recognized.”
U.S. News also placed Lawrence Tech on its list of “A+ Schools for B Students,” which the magazine defined as schools where students who might not have been “superstars” in high school have a chance to be accepted for admission – and where they can grow and thrive.
The rankings are available in the U.S. News Best Colleges 2018 Guidebook and online at https://www.usnews.com/best-colleges.
U.S. News said its rankings are based on “widely accepted indicators of excellence,” including first-year student retention rates, graduation rates, assessments of academic quality by peer institutions, the level of alumni giving, and the strength of the faculty.
