“UNG’s inclusion in these rankings is indicative of our increasing national recognition and the momentum we have established,” President Bonita Jacobs said. “UNG offers an exceptional educational experience that is built on a commitment to student success, high quality academics and affordability. This strong combination and our growing reputation add value to our students’ experience and their degrees.”
The rankings are based on data related to academic quality, including freshman retention rates, peer assessment, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources, graduation rates, and alumni giving. The rankings are based primarily on data from 2015 and, for some factors, include averages of the previous two to four years of data.
