ACU named one of nation’s top universities for 2019

USNWR 2019 rankingsAbilene Christian University was again recognized by U.S. News & World Report in its 2019 annual “Best Colleges” rankings released Monday. Overall, ACU ranked No. 21 among 95 top-tier regional universities across 15 states in the West.
ACU was named No. 4 in “Most Innovative Schools” in the West, a category U.S. News added four years ago. The ranking is the result of college presidents, provosts and admissions deans being asked to nominate institutions “making the most innovative improvements in terms of curriculum, faculty, students, campus life, technology or facilities.”
ACU ranked No. 10 in “Best Value Schools,” which takes into account a school’s academic quality weighed against net cost of attendance; No. 13 in “Best Colleges for Veterans”; and No. 14 in Undergraduate Teaching among regional universities in the West.  
In August, Forbes featured ACU in its 2018 list of “America’s Top Colleges.” Forbes joined with the Center for College Affordability and Productivity to choose 650 schools based on “the quality of the education they provide, the experience of the students and how much they achieve.”
ACU was recognized again in the Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education college rankings. The rankings include results of the U.S. Student Survey, which examines a range of key issues including students’ engagement with their studies, their interaction with their teachers and their satisfaction with their experience based on 200,000 current student voices.
Also in August, The Princeton Review named Abilene Christian one of the “Best in the West” for 2019. ACU is one of 129 schools receiving this distinction as “academically excellent institutions of higher learning” for the 15-state western region of the U.S.
“It is a special distinction to be nationally recognized each year by education experts such as U.S. News, Forbes, The Princeton Review and Wall Street Journal,” said ACU president Dr. Phil Schubert (’91). “To be affirmed each year speaks highly of the quality education our students receive and the success experienced by our graduates.”
