U.S. News & World Report: Malone University a "Best Regional University"

File Under: Malone News

Malone is once again recognized as one of the best colleges in the Midwest by U. S. News & World Report in the magazine’s annual ranking of best colleges in the country. Malone was recognized in the listing of the Best Regional Universities in the Midwest (#71) and Best Regional Universities for Social Mobility (#53).

“Third-party endorsements confirm what we already know, that Malone is one of the best values in all of higher education,” said Malone President David King. “It’s heartening to see that determination made by outside parties based on data. Members of our community know this by seeing the outcomes of our transformational student experience.”

Institutions are selected based on a calculation of the school’s academic quality, as indicated by its 2021 U.S. News ranking. The Social Mobility indicator measures how well schools graduated students who received federal Pell Grants. Students receiving these grants typically come from households whose family incomes are less than $50,000 annually, though most Pell Grant money goes to students with a total family income below $20,000.

“Malone's ongoing support from U.S. News serves as a reminder that our educational experience is a worthy investment for students who want to pursue higher education 'at such a time as this,'" said King. “Our graduates are prepared to thrive in a complex world as servant leaders shaped by Malone's integration of faith and learning.”
