The WSJ/THE designation is a pioneering ranking of US colleges and universities that puts student success and learning at its heart. The survey includes clear performance indicators designed to answer the questions that matter most to students and their families including who to trust with their education and how likely is the individual to graduate, pay off their debt, and get a good job. Student outcomes, engagement, resources, and environment all contributed to Albertus Magnus’ inclusion on the list, with the College receiving its strongest scores in the Environment category, which focuses on diversity and inclusion.
“With the Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education rankings focused on what matters most to students and their families in these challenging times, Albertus’ inclusion in this annual ranking is affirming of the ever-growing reputation of the College and further reinforces the promise of a liberal arts-based education deeply rooted in Dominican values,” said President Marc M. Camille, Ed.D., who has been leading the College since 2017. “We’re proud that students choosing an Albertus education continue to mirror the diversity of our nation, and our graduates are continuing to do exceptionally well in finding that first job or going on to graduate programs.”
Earlier this month, US News & World Report’s 2022 college rankings named Albertus a Top 100 Regional University in the North and a top performer in the Social Mobility category.
