UE Recognized for Student Engagement by Wall Street Journal

The University of Evansville (UE) was recently named to The Wall Street Journal’s annual U.S. College Rankings for student engagement, placing 16th in the nation among over 4,000 four-year colleges and universities in the United States.

Now in its fifth year, the U.S. College Rankings focuses most on student success and learning outcomes. Insights for the report were gathered through the Times Higher Education U.S. Student Survey, which included questions about interactions with faculty and other students, whether a student felt involved and welcome, and whether the student would recommend the school. The complete report was published to The Wall Street Journal‘s website on Thursday, September 17.

“At the University of Evansville, we strive to offer a welcoming and active campus environment that serves as a home for our students,” said president Christopher M. Pietruszkiewicz. “Here, they can find a supportive network of faculty, administrators, and fellow students that shapes their college experience and prepares them for future success.”

While the COVID-19 pandemic has caused UE to implement health and safety guidelines for its campus, students can still be involved and obtain an engaging college experience. The University offers over 130 student organizations and clubs, and the Center for Student Engagement can help students participate in community service opportunities, Greek Life, leadership development, and more.

Recently, UE was recognized by U.S. News & World Report as the #4 Best College in the Midwest, moving up two spots from the previous year. The University also received rankings for school value, veteran support, and international student representation.

Students at the University of Evansville shape powerful and enduring change. UE is the first in Indiana to be designated as an Ashoka U Changemaker Campus, and its changemaking culture empowers students to improve the world around them as UE Changemakers. With over 80 majors in the arts and sciences and pre-professional programs, UE’s diverse student body represents 44 states and 52 countries. U.S. News & World Report recognizes UE as the #4 Best College in the Midwest among private schools. For more information, please visit evansville.edu.
