As part of the Strategic Plan 2020, the University of Saint Joseph focused on three key goals – high-impact learning, stature and distinctiveness, and strength and stability. Through rigorous academic programs, opportunities for experiential learning, and the recent decision to become coeducational, USJ’s headway in achieving these goals is evident in newly released ranking of our #55 ranking, a nearly 30% increase over 2018, in “Best Regional Universities – North” and #23 in “Best Value for Regional Universities” in the 2019 U.S. News & World Report rankings. Within the Connecticut rankings, USJ is the #4 Best Regional University and #2 Best Value Regional University.
“Best Regional Universities – North” compared programs with a wide range of undergraduate and master’s programs, but limited doctoral programs by region on a variety of dimensions. For “Best Value for Regional Universities” – a category comparing U.S. News & World Report Best College ranking, net cost, retention, financial aid, and graduation rates – USJ was listed #23.
Since its founding in 1932, the University of Saint Joseph (USJ) has remained dedicated to providing a rigorous education that prepares students for successful careers after graduation. It is through the combined and tireless efforts of USJ faculty, staff, executive leadership, peer mentors, career advisors, and proud alumni that USJ earned notable ranking on both lists.
