This year, Anderson University continued rising up the ranks of U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Colleges” list, coming in at No. 65 among regional universities in the South in rankings released Sept. 10.

Anderson ranked No. 73 in last year’s rankings. In 2016, AU moved into U.S. News & World Report’s more competitive “Regional University” category; previously, Anderson was among the top 20 in the publication’s best “Regional Colleges” list.

“Today’s rankings reaffirm our commitment to an academically excellent, comprehensive Christian education and the principles upon which our institution has stood since 1911,” said President Evans P. Whitaker. “We’re pleased that U.S. News & World Report continues to recognize the affordable, entrepreneurial, and innovative environment that Anderson University’s students enjoy, and we look forward to even better things in the years to come.”

In addition to Anderson’s place among the best universities in the region, U.S. News & World Report named AU as the No. 16 “Most Innovative” school and No. 36 on the list of “Best Value” schools.
