For the second consecutive year, Butler University has been named the No. 1 Regional University in the Midwest, according to the 2020 U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges Rankings released today.

U.S. News and World Report's college rankings are out - and are the hobgoblins of academic worth.

CWRU gets top marks for Best Value and Innovation.

Among all national universities, the University of ME in Orono ranked at 202, the University of New England in Biddeford at 246 and Husson University in Bangor at 293.

In Maine, Bowdoin College in Brunswick ranked sixth - up one spot from previous year - among national liberal arts colleges followed by Colby College in Waterville, which ranked 11th.

In its 2020 release, U.S. News and World Report gave special kudos to Florida, California and NY colleges and universities for excelling in enrolling and graduating large proportions of low-income students.

Since 2016, FSU jumped 25 spots in the report's rankings for public universities.

The highest ranked California campus among national public and private schools overall was Stanford University, at No. 6. Data show that students who take U101 return to school for their sophomore year and graduate from the university at higher rates than students who don't take the course as freshmen.

Among 146 public universities nationwide, the University of Maine Orono was rated 100th - down three spots from a 97th place ranking previous year.

During a visit to the University of Florida in Gainesville, DeSantis praised the school's "steady improvement".

UCLA tied for No. 7 among USA public universities (tied for 11 overall) for ethnic diversity. The school's undergraduate business program improved six spots, moving to No. 38. It ranked 218th among all national universities.

The university also received high marks in the U.S. News rankings for its living-learning communities, with SC coming in at No. 8 among public universities. The University provides a vibrant campus community for more than 17,000 students by blending interdisciplinary research with an worldwide reputation for educational excellence and a faculty commitment to teaching and scholarship.

The rankings compare colleges based on ACT/SAT Scores, student-faculty ratios, tuition and several other areas. The top university was UC's campus at Riverside, followed by Santa Cruz and Irvine. The social mobility ranking is based primarily on the graduation rates of Pell-awarded students, schools' percentages of Pell Grant recipients, and comparisons of graduation rates between students with and without Pell Grants.

"We are thrilled to see our progress reflected in this year's numbers", says Jean Morrison, University provost and chief academic officer.
