Daemen named to list of national college rankings

For the second consecutive year, Daemen College has been ranked nationally in the Wall Street Journal/ Times Higher Education college rankings, which focus on student success and learning.

The second annual list includes 1,054 institutions from across the U.S.

Rankings are based on four key performance areas, including resources, engagement, outcomes and environment.

According to college officials, based on the criteria Daemen was strongest in the area of engagement, making it the second time the college has ranked highly for effectively engaging with students.

Specific measures used to assess this are interaction with teachers and students, students feeling engaged with the college, whether students would recommend the institution to a friend, and the number of accredited programs.

“This Wall Street Journal and Times Higher Education ranking reflects Daemen’s growing national prominence and the high-quality education we offer our students,” said Daemen President Gary A. Olson. “Earning high marks for student engagement for the second year in a row is a testament to the steadfast commitment of our faculty and staff to ensuring that our students are fully involved in their own college experience.”
