UM Cracks Top Tier in U.S. News & World Report Rankings



“UM Cracks Top Tier in U.S. News & World Report Rankings” is really a great statement. Why? Because I am an ex-Hurricanes myself. I was there in 1984 till 1988. Here is the detail press release. I have few words to say, “I am proud to study at The University of Miami, we are ‘Numero Uno’ forever”

August 20, 2009 — Coral Gables — University of Miami students returning to campus for the new academic year will have another source of pride as ’Canes—their university has cracked the top tier of what is annually one of the most anticipated college ranking lists in the nation.

UM has been ranked No. 50 in U.S. News & World Report’s 2010 edition of “America’s Best Colleges,” which hits newsstands on Monday. It rose from No. 51 last year and has moved up 17 slots in the past eight years, making it one of the fastest-rising institutions in the ranking of national universities.

The editors of U.S. News & World Report have ranked the nation’s top universities and colleges for the past 26 years.

“I am delighted with this recognition,” said UM President Donna E. Shalala, who added that she is proud of the University’s significant accomplishments as measured in student achievement, retention, and graduation rates as well as the caliber of faculty and facilities and the living and learning environment the institution provides.
