SIUE Rated a Top 10 Midwest Regional Public University by U.S. News

September 9, 2015

U.S. News & World Report ranks Southern Illinois University Edwardsville among the best Regional Universities Midwest for the 12th consecutive year and among the top 10 public universities in that category. The listing is in the magazine’s “Best Colleges of 2016” issue that was released today.

SIUE was featured at number 44 in this year’s rankings of Regional Universities Midwest, advancing three spots from last year. The University is 10th overall among public universities in that category. The U.S. News overall scores are based on the reputation of SIUE in higher education, graduation and retention rates, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources and alumni giving.

Regional universities are considered to have a full range of undergraduate majors and master’s programs, but few doctoral programs. The 618 universities in this category are ranked against their peer group in one of four geo­graphic regions (North, South, Midwest and West), because they tend to draw students most heavily from surrounding states.
