Immaculata University Is Nationally Ranked By U.S. News & World Report For Two Categories

U.S. News and World Report again ranked Immaculata University among the best national universities, and is one of only 18 higher education institutions in Pennsylvania that represent that category.

In addition, Immaculata is proud to be among the Top Performers on Social Mobility, a ranking of colleges across the nation that enrolls and graduates a large proportion of disadvantaged students, typically from families making $50,000 or less per year.

“It is great to see Immaculata University recognized at the national level for the hard work and dedication of its students, faculty and administrators,” states President Barbara Lettiere ’72.

U.S. News ranks colleges and universities on six key indicators—outcomes (35%), faculty resources (20%), expert opinion (20%), student excellence (10%), financial resources (10%) and alumni giving (5%). With Immaculata’s extremely high retention rate of 85 percent and 9:1 student to teacher ratio, students graduate prepared for a professional career or graduate studies. Several partnership initiatives, along with generous scholarships, allow undergraduate students to experience an Immaculata education at an affordable price.
