U.S. News and World Report continues to give TU high marks
TOWSON, Md. (Oct. 24, 2006)— Towson University continues to rank among the best public Master’s institutions in the North according to U.S. News & World Report’s 2007 America’s Best Colleges guide.
The current issue ranks Towson sixth among all in its Top Public Master’s (North) category; but Towson ranks even higher among these institutions, which have a student population greater than 10,000. In that range, Towson University’s evaluations place it in the number two spot, according to an independent review of the findings.
TU earned the second-highest peer assessment score in this select group of 11 colleges and universities, reflecting the high regard in which it is held by top academics from comparable institutions.
President Robert L. Caret said of this year’s rankings, “I’m very pleased to see that U.S. News has again recognized Towson University as one of the best universities of its kind.
“Working with 20,000 students is a bit more of a challenge than working with one to two thousand. We are proud of the educational environment we have created.
“Towson addresses a variety of challenges unique to large, complex, metropolitan campuses,” he said, “yet year after year we continue to excel in competition with smaller schools.
“The rankings reflect the extraordinary effort our faculty and staff have put into nourishing the ‘small feel/big reality’ that has become a hallmark of the Towson University experience for generations of students.
“This recognition gives us yet another reason to cheer as Towson launches its 2006-2007 academic year.”
