(BALTIMORE, Md.) – Offering exceptional quality in higher education, Notre Dame of Maryland University jumps to #27 on the 2022 U.S. News Best Colleges ranking for best value schools in the northern region and continues to rank as one of the nation’s top universities.
NDMU rose more than 25 spots on the Best Value Schools ranking, making it one of four Maryland schools on the top 30 list. In addition, NDMU ranked #21 on the top performers in social mobility list, an indicator of how well the university graduates students with demonstrated financial need. NDMU also tied for #62 for the best universities in the regional north.
This year, U.S. News Best Colleges added a ranking for the best undergraduate nursing programs, and NDMU’s Bachelor of Science in nursing (BSN) degree program placed in the top half. This ranking is based solely on the judgment of deans and senior nursing faculty from BSN-granting institutions.
“Our student-centered approach provides the support and educational quality that students need to succeed once they graduate,” said NDMU President Marylou Yam. “The U.S. News Best Colleges rankings reflect the commitment of our faculty and staff to provide the best educational experience for our students.”
U.S. News & World Report develops its rankings on 17 indicators to determine academic quality, including student outcomes, graduation and retention rates, social mobility, faculty resources, expert opinion, student excellence, and alumni giving. The publication does not rank all universities or colleges and includes more than 1,400 institutions that award bachelor’s degrees.
