CLEVELAND, Ga. — Truett McConnell University has once again been ranked among the top higher education institutions in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. The 2022 education rankings put Truett McConnell at No. 44 in Best Regional Colleges in the South, No. 18 for Best Value Schools for Regional Colleges in the South, and No. 23 in Top Performers of Social Mobility for Regional Colleges in the South.
The new rankings, which increased considerably from previous listings, compares indicators from public and private universities such as graduation and retention rates, faculty resources, social mobility, student excellence, and financial resources.
“At Truett McConnell University, we view students as part of our family,” said Truett McConnell President Emir Caner. “As such, our faculty and staff work tirelessly in equipping students in faith as well as in life. Now, not only is the university ranked in quality as one of the top 15 percent of all universities in the South, but we are also recognized as one of the most affordable colleges in the South and as one of the highest performers in assisting lower income students graduate from college.”
The U.S. News & World Report rankings are intended to let readers know the broad range of four-year degree options available. U.S. News & World Report recommends prospective students explore the rankings to create an initial list of schools based on academics and then use the website’s search tools and data to more closely examine other factors based on their personal priorities and interests.
“I could not be more thankful for our faculty and staff and how much they invest in the next generation,” Caner said.
