University of Jamestown has again received the highest regional college rankings of all North Dakota institutions in U.S. News and World Report’s “Best Colleges 2020” edition, released Sept. 9.

“We are pleased to once again be recognized by U.S. News and World Report as a best regional college in the Midwest,” said UJ President, Dr. Polly Peterson. As the top ranked University in the state in any category, we are proud to be recognized for the quality of the educational experience we provide and the successes that our alumni achieve after graduation.”
U.S. News and World Report’s “Best Colleges” is the most recognized and popular of all college rankings. The report evaluates colleges and universities annually by assessing criteria such as peer assessment, graduation rate, student/faculty ratios, class size, alumni giving, and student testing scores. Categories are Regional Colleges, Regional Universities, National Universities, and National Liberal Arts Colleges.

Dr. Peterson expanded on why she feels the University stands out in the region, saying, “Our mission is to provide a holistic educational experience where learning occurs both in the classroom and through extensive co-curricular learning opportunities – all rooted in our commitment to Christian faith. Through internships, co-ops, study abroad and campus involvement, our students are prepared for success as they enter the work force upon graduation.”
