Dominican University named one of top 20 in Midwest by U.S. News & World Report

The University I teach part-time at has a few things to brag about. The link is here, but I’m going to post the whole thing below anyway.

 

Dominican University's Lewis Hall. The university has made the top tier of master's level universities in the Midwest for the past 14 years.

Dominican University has been named among the top 20 master’s level universities in the Midwest in the 2012 U.S. News & World Report annual rankings. Dominican is one of three Illinois schools included in the top 20, including Bradley University and Elmhurst College.

In addition, Dominican is listed as one of the top 10 “Great Schools at a Great Price” in the Midwest. This category evaluates a school’s academic ranking and the 2010-2011 net cost of attendance for a student receiving the average level of need-based financial aid. The only other Illinois institution in the top 10 is Bradley University.

Dominican is also included in the category of “A-Plus Schools for B Students,” along with Butler University, John Carroll University and Valparaiso University. This category focuses on schools that value a student’s well-rounded background, hard work and individuality as well as his/her test scores and class standing.

The U.S. News & World Report’s influential annual “America’s Best Colleges” issue has included Dominican in the top tier of master’s level universities in the Midwest for the past 14 years.

The annual examination of 1,400 accredited four-year American colleges and universities, based on categories created by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, has become one of the most comprehensive tools for students and families considering higher education opportunities across the country.

Founded in 1901, Dominican University is a comprehensive, coeducational Catholic institution offering bachelor’s degrees and master’s degrees through the Graduate School of Library and Information Science, the Brennan School of Business, the Graduate School of Social Work, the School of Education and the School of Continuing Studies. The university also offers a doctoral degree in library and information science.
