Named A Best Regional University, a Top Public University and a Top Performer on Social Mobility by U.S. News and World Report

 

U.S. News & World Report has again named the University of Wisconsin-River Falls a Best Regional University, a Top Public University and a Top Performer on Social Mobility.

The newest rankings appear in the U.S. News & World Report’s 2022 edition of Best Colleges. Schools are ranked according to their performance across a set of widely accepted indicators of excellence.

In the survey, UW-River Falls was recognized for its focus on social mobility, supporting economically disadvantaged students who are less likely than others to finish college. Student-to-faculty ratios and smaller class sizes were also acknowledged, both of which provide better access to instructors and support a student-centered learning environment.

The U.S. News & World Report rankings evaluate more than 1,400 colleges and universities on up to 17 measures of academic quality. The 2022 rankings can be found online at usnews.com/best-colleges.
