UNH Community,

I want to share some great news as we prepare for the new academic year to begin. We just learned that the University of New Haven has moved up to the top-tier list of regional universities in the North in the 2011 edition of U.S. News and World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges” rankings. Last year, UNH was ranked in the third tier of regional universities in the North.

I am very proud that our substantial investments in academic programs, student life and campus facilities in recent years have resulted in UNH receiving this important recognition. We have made a strong commitment to providing our students with extensive opportunities for internships, community service and study abroad. As a result, we are increasingly recognized as a leader in experiential education throughout the nation.

The 2011 Best Colleges rankings provide an examination of how more than 1,400 accredited four-year schools compare on a set of up to 16 indicators of excellence. This year, UNH improved in the following key quality indicators: peer assessment, graduation rate, student selectivity and the number of freshmen who ranked in the top 25 percent of their high school graduating class.

According to U.S. News, regional universities are similar to national universities and provide a full range of undergraduate programs and some master’s level programs. The 572 regional universities are ranked within four geographic areas: North, South, Midwest and West. There are a total of 126 colleges ranked in the top tier of regional universities in the North in this year’s rankings.

Best wishes,

Steven H. Kaplan
