Anderson University Continues Rising in U.S. News & World Report Rankings

September 9, 2019

Anderson University remains one of the top universities in the South, coming in at No. 50 on U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Colleges” list released today.

In all, Anderson appeared in four categories of excellence released by U.S. News & World Report for 2020. In addition to rising 15 spots to No. 50 among regional universities in the South from its ranking a year ago, AU was named a “Best Value” (No. 32) and “Most Innovative” (No. 19) university, and was ranked the No. 20 “Best Undergraduate Teaching” institution among regional universities in the South. 

Anderson was ranked the No. 65 “Best College” in 2019 and No. 73 in 2018. In 2016, AU moved into U.S. News & World Report’s more competitive “Regional University” category; previously, Anderson was among the top 20 in the publication’s best “Regional Colleges” list. 

“At no time in its history has Anderson University enjoyed more momentum, higher enrollment or greater offerings in academic programs,” said President Evans P. Whitaker. “We are thankful that, once again, U.S. News & World Report has recognized our uncompromising commitment to great academics, great faith, great hospitality, and great purpose.”
