September 13, 2016


Stonehill jumped eight spots in the latest U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges rankings released on September 13, 2016. The College tied for 108th on the list of the top 239 National Liberal Arts Schools.

“I am pleased that Stonehill is recognized for the thoughtful and innovative work of our faculty and staff”, said Provost Joseph A. Favazza. “We strive to offer a first-rate educational environment that challenges and champions our students.”

The College has consistently ranked in the top half of schools since transitioning into the “National Liberal Arts” category in 2008. Previously, Stonehill held a No. 1 ranking in what was then called the “Comprehensive-Bachelor’s (North)” category from 2001-2007.

In addition to this year’s ranking in the Liberal Arts category, Stonehill was included in the unranked list “A+ Colleges for B Students.”

This year’s edition of the U.S. News’ Best Colleges ranking includes data on more than 1,800 colleges and universities nationwide. Eligible schools are ranked on up to 16 measures of academic excellence, including graduation rates, selectivity and freshmen retention.
