Nyack College In Top 20 Schools for Environment on 2018 Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education U.S. College Rankings
The second edition of the Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education U.S. College Rankings has been released. Editorial Director Phil Baty writes in a cover letter accompanying the publication, “Rather than rewarding colleges for educating “better” students, we created a ranking that rewards colleges for educating students better.”
Again Nyack College is on the 2018 list of top 20 colleges and universities for environment and has moved from the #17 spot, shared with five other institutions in 2017, to #13 shared with three other institutions. Nyack has also moved up from the 800+ level ranking to the 600 level.
The four “pillars” ranked are resources, engagement, outcomes and environment. In the environment category, a variety of measures of diversity in the student and faculty population are weighed. Among those factors examined at each institution are ethnic diversity, economic diversity (the proportion of students who receive Pell Grants), the proportion of students who are first generation degree earners and the proportion of international students at the institution.
