Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education Ranks Assumption as a Top U.S. College
Assumption College has once again been recognized as one of the top colleges and universities in the nation by The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education (WSJ/THE) College Rankings for 2020. This is the third consecutive year Assumption has been included on the national list as well as named a best college in the Northeast.
According to WSJ/THE, these rankings are “designed to put graduate success and student learning at its heart.” The organization uses “15 individual performance metrics, grouped into four pillars”—resources, engagement, outcomes, and environment.

The WSJ/THE website states that the “balanced scorecard approach” of the rankings relies on national experts as well as data from the THE U.S. Student Survey and THE Academic Reputation Survey; IPEDS; the College Scorecard; and Federal Student Aid.
