Westminster recognized as a "Best Value" college and an "A+ School for B Students"
SALT LAKE CITY - For the 18th consecutive year, Westminster College has been ranked as a "Best Regional University" in the West by the national publication U.S.News and World Report.
In the 2013 U.S.News edition, Westminster was ranked 22nd in the West category, and was again included as an "A+ School for B Students" as well as a "Great School at a Great Price."
"We are very pleased that Westminster has again been recognized as a top-tier institution by U.S.News," said Westminster President Brian Levin-Stankevich. "We are very proud that our efforts to make a quality education affordable have been recognized, and that Westminster is seen as a 'Best Value' college. This should be especially significant to parents and students who are scrutinizing colleges and costs in this current economic climate."
In 1983, U.S.News and World Report began its annual rankings of American colleges and universities. Data is collected and tabulated on each participating school for up to 16 indicators of academic quality including peer review, student selectivity, faculty resources, retention, etc. Colleges are then ranked in their specific category (National Universities, National Liberal Arts Colleges, Regional Universities and Regional Colleges) by their total weighted score.
