In the 2014 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 appreciate that U.S. News continues to recognize Westminster as a top-tier institution and an exceptional value for our students," said Westminster President Brian Levin-Stankevich. "We are keenly aware of the financial struggles that students and parents face in today's economy, so it's imperative that our institution provides an excellent return on investment and graduates students with the adaptability and lifelong learning ability that comes from studying the liberal arts, as well as the skills they need to succeed in our competitive, global world."
