Alverno College ranked number one on the list of “Most Innovative Schools” among Midwest Regional Universities in U.S. News & World Report’s 2016 America’s Best Colleges guidebook.
Colleges in this new category are recognized for “making the most innovative improvements in terms of curriculum, faculty, students, campus life, technology or facilities.”
Alverno College is also ranked in the top five Midwest Regional Universities for its “strong commitment to teaching.” In the six-year history of this category, Alverno is the only Wisconsin college to receive this recognition in the Midwest Regional standings each year. College presidents, provosts and admissions deans were asked to “identify schools where the faculty have an unusually strong commitment to undergraduate teaching.” This marks the fifteenth consecutive year U.S. News & World Report has recognized Alverno in its annual rankings.
“Our reputation for excellence in undergraduate education has always been a source of great pride for us,” said Mary J. Meehan, Ph.D., president of Alverno College. “What’s especially satisfying is to see the innovative and creative work of our dedicated faculty recognized as well as our efforts to provide a campus environment that mirrors the quality of our teaching.”
