UE Recognized for Student Engagement by Wall Street Journal
Posted: Monday, September 21, 2020
The University of Evansville (UE) was recently named to The Wall Street Journal’s annual U.S. College Rankings for student engagement, placing 16th in the nation among over 4,000 four-year colleges and universities in the United States. The complete report was published to The Wall Street Journal’s website on Thursday, September 17.
Now in its fifth year, the U.S. College Rankings focuses most on student success and learning outcomes. Insights for the report were gathered through the Times Higher Education U.S. Student Survey, which included questions about interactions with faculty and other students, whether a student felt involved and welcome, and whether the student would recommend the school.
“At the University of Evansville, we strive to offer a welcoming and active campus environment that serves as a home for our students,” said president Christopher M. Pietruszkiewicz. “Here, they can find a supportive network of faculty, administrators, and fellow students that shapes their college experience and prepares them for future success.”
While the COVID-19 pandemic has caused UE to implement health and safety guidelines for its campus, students can still be involved and obtain an engaging college experience. The University offers over 130 student organizations and clubs, and the Center for Student Engagement can help students participate in community service opportunities, Greek Life, leadership development, and more.
Earlier this week, UE was recognized by U.S. News & World Report as the #4 Best College in the Midwest, moving up two spots from the previous year. The University also received rankings for school value, veteran support, and international student representation.
