Dean College, a private, residential college located in
Franklin, Massachusetts, has been ranked 26th in the U.S. News &
World Report for the Best Regional Colleges, North category. Additionally, Dean
placed 2nd in this category for colleges with the least amount of student debt and 8th for Best Colleges for Veterans.
This is the fourth consecutive year that Dean College has
received this honor, having moved up in the rankings from the previous year.
“We are pleased to be recognized by U.S. News and our peer
institutions once again this year,” said John Marcus, Vice President of
Enrollment Services and Marketing at Dean College. “Of particular note this
year is our designation as a Best College for Veterans, as we continually look
for ways to assist veterans in completing their undergraduate degree program.”
U.S. News & World Report is a multi-platform, publisher of
news and information. The U.S. News ranking system for the Best Regional
Colleges rests on two pillars. The formula uses quantitative measures that
education experts have proposed as reliable indicators of academic quality, and
it is based on research of what matters in education, including: graduation
rate performance, academic reputation, and financial selectivity among others.
This news could not have come at a better time for Dean
College, as the school will celebrate its 150th Anniversary early
next year. Founded in February 1865, the college has seen many transformations,
always with the mission of cultivating an environment of academic and personal
success for students. This year’s ranking is a testament to The Dean Difference
– the hands-on and engaging faculty & staff, strong academic support,
valuable internships, and real life workforce preparation that Dean College
provides. The College recently
welcomed a robust class of incoming students to add to its total enrollment representing 32 states and 16 countries.
