      Dean College Ranks Among the Top Best Regional Colleges

      Dean College, a private, residential college located in Franklin, Massachusetts, has been ranked 22nd in the 2018 U.S. News & World Report for the Best Regional Colleges, North category. Additionally, Dean placed 15th in this category for Best Value Schools.  

      This is the seventh consecutive year that Dean College has received the honor.

      “We are thrilled to be recognized by U.S. News and our peer institutions once again this year,” said Dr. Paula M. Rooney, Dean College President. “It signals the overall strength of Dean’s academic experience and the emphasis we place on student success.”

      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 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.
