Keiser University Garners High Marks in Recent College and University Rankings

Keiser University recently earned high marks from a pair of national rankings of the top colleges and universities in the country. Both U.S. News & World Report and Niche highlighted the university as one of the top schools in the country for 2020.

Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States - September 12, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

Keiser University was proud to learn they ranked #34 in the new Social Mobility category within U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 Best Colleges. In its first year as a unique category, the Social Mobility ranking acknowledges colleges and universities that succeed at advancing social mobility by enrolling and graduating large proportions of students awarded with Pell Grants. The category measures how successfully schools graduated students who were recipients of federal Pell Grants.

“We are very pleased to earn such high marks in social mobility in only the first year,” said Arthur Keiser, Chancellor of Keiser University. “It’s evidence of our school’s commitment to providing our diverse population of students with an education that leads to a successful career.”

In addition to its spot on the social mobility list, Keiser University earned a top 275 ranking among all universities in the nation in the National Universities category. This is the first year Keiser was listed in the National University category, which includes schools that offer a full range of undergraduate and graduate majors, plus doctoral programs, and emphasize faculty research.

Keiser University was previously classified in the Regional Universities grouping where it placed 52 in the south region in 2018. The Regional Universities index is a geographic ranking of schools with a broad scope of undergraduate degrees and some master's degree programs, but few, if any, doctoral programs. Keiser, along with more than 200 institutions, changed categories this year because of its grouping on the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education.

“I’m very proud of our 2020 ranking, said Dr. Arthur Keiser.” We were ahead of FAU (Florida Atlantic University) and UNF (University of North Florida) and those are very good schools.”

In addition to the U.S. News rankings, Keiser University fared well on Niche’s 2020 College Rankings with high marks in online education, culinary, and safety. Among all colleges and universities in the country, Keiser earned a top 25 percent ranking overall in both the Best Colleges and Top Private Universities categories.

Keiser University also took the #7 overall spot in Best Online Colleges, which ranks schools based on their ability to deliver quality online education to students. The placement was the best among all colleges and universities in Florida with Embry-Riddle being the only other Florida school to earn a top 10 mark.

Additionally, Keiser scored the #26 spot on Niche’s ranking of Top Culinary Schools in the U.S. The university also earned the #43 mark for Safest College Campuses in America, the fourth best in Florida. Keiser earned top 100 placement in three other categories: Best Colleges for Information Technology, Best Colleges for Criminal Justice, and Colleges with the Best Student Life.

The 2020 edition of US News & World Report’s Best Colleges provides data on more than 1,900 colleges, with rankings for nearly 1,400 institutions. U.S. News considers 15 metrics when ranking schools for academic excellence, placing the largest emphasis on a college's ability to retain and graduate its students. Other factors include class size, undergraduate academic reputation, and how much a school spends per student on instruction and other related educational expenses.

Niche’s Best Colleges ranking is based on rigorous analysis of academic, admissions, financial, and student life data from the U.S. Department of Education along with millions of reviews from students and alumni. The ranking compares more than 1,600 top colleges and universities in the U.S.

Schwarber homers as Cubs beat Reds 8-2

Sep 17, 2019

CHICAGO — Playing without Anthony Rizzo, the Chicago Cubs turned to Kyle Schwarber. And Nicholas Castellanos. And Alec Mills. It seemed like everyone helped out. Schwarber hit a three-run homer and made a diving catch in left field, and the Cubs beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-2 on Monday night for their fifth straight victory. Castellanos added a two-run double in the eighth inning as Chicago moved a season-high 14 games above .500. The Cubs have outscored opponents 59-18 during their streak. "This is the time," Castellanos said. "We're facing adversity and we've got to stare it down. There's a lot...

Senzaltela, Story lead Rockies over Mets 9-4

Sep 17, 2019

DENVER — Steven Matz doesn't regret the 401-foot home run by Trevor Story. The juicy sinker to pitcher Antonio Senzatela will stick with him. "I got ahead of him and I made a really bad pitch," Matz said. "That's what it boils down to." Senzatela hit a tying, two-run single that ended a year-long 0-for-44 slide at the plate, and Story followed three pitches later with a three-run homer to cap a six-run fourth inning. The Colorado Rockies beat the Mets 9-4 Monday night to drop New York five games back for the second NL wild card with 12 games...

Tigers split with O's, remain on track for top draft pick

Sep 17, 2019

DETROIT — There was only one fitting way for a four-game series between the major leagues' worst teams to end — with no one winning. In the first series in American League history between teams 50 or more games under .500, the Detroit Tigers beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-2 on Monday to earn a split. "That was a nice win," Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said. "We got an early lead against a pretty good pitcher and we held on." Detroit (45-104) has a 3½ game "lead" over Baltimore (49-101) for the top pick in June's amateur draft, which goes to...

Column: Truex and Pearn find comfortable fit with Gibbs team

Sep 17, 2019

LAS VEGAS — Martin Truex Jr. and Cole Pearn built a championship-winning team far from NASCAR's hub in North Carolina, using their own approach in making a single-car organization one of the most dominant. Then Barney Visser shuttered his Colorado-based team and the driver and crew chief were nearly unemployed. "Out of a job? I don't think so," snorted Joe Gibbs. Gibbs pulled them both into Joe Gibbs Racing, Visser's technical partner when he was running Furniture Row Racing in suburban Denver, and the results haven't changed at all. Truex won for the fifth time Sunday in his first season...

Sánchez blanks Braves, Nationals salvage series finale 7-0

Sep 17, 2019

WASHINGTON — Aníbal Sánchez has seen enough in 14 years in the majors to know when his team needs a lift. He provided one Sunday, pitching seven sharp innings to help the Washington Nationals prevent a three-game sweep and beat the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves 7-0. "I think that's what we needed right now," Sánchez said. "I think every game we win right now is really important for us." Washington manager Dave Martinez left in the middle of the game. Bench coach Chip Hale, who took over for Martinez, said the second-year manager was not feeling well and was taken...
