U.S. News & World Report has released its “2019 Best Colleges” list and once again Nyack College is a leader in ethnic diversity for regional universities in the North. Nyack is the only private institution that shares the second highest score on diversity with public colleges in the North.
The ranking is based on data collected on the student body for the 2017-2018 academic year. Groups calculated in the findings were “African-American (non-Hispanic), Hispanic, American Indian, Asian-American, Pacific Islander, White (non-Hispanic) and multiracial (two or more races).” International students are not factored in the results.
Reflected in its student body, faculty and staff, Nyack’s core value of being intentionally diverse continues to be nationally recognized. Beyond racial and ethnic diversity, the College was among the top 20 institutions on the 2018 Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education World University Rankings applauded for campus environment. The percentage of international students enrolled and the inclusion of students from lower-income and first-generation college families was also measured in the Wall Street Journal ranking, placing Nyack among “the top multicultural schools in the Northeast” region of the United States.
The U.S. News & World Report “2019 Best Colleges” guidebook is available for pre-order and will begin shipping on October 1. Copies can be purchased in stores on October 16.
