The University of Findlay once again finds itself on a publication’s list of the best colleges in the country.
U.S. News & World Report has the University of Findlay ranked 240 out of the nearly 400 universities listed in the national category.
For the 2020 rankings, UF moved from the Midwest category to the national category, which recognizes schools that offer a full range of undergraduate majors as well as master’s and doctoral degrees.
“In many cases, they (national schools) place strong emphasis on research and receive federal money to support their research endeavors,” U.S. News & World Report explained.
Additionally, UF placed 16th out of the 381 schools listed in the new “Top Performers on Social Mobility” rankings.
This list measures how well schools graduated students who received federal Pell Grants, which are typically awarded to students from households whose family incomes are less than $50,000.
The university says this is the 14th consecutive year that it has been named by U.S. News & World Report in its Best Colleges rankings as a premier academic institution
