Doane University Recognized in Wall Street Journal's 2018 College Rankings
Doane University has been recognized by the Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education in their college rankings, earning the second highest mark among colleges in Nebraska. Doane is ranked 417th in the nation this year, while Creighton University received the highest ranking in Nebraska. Doane’s ranking of 417 is 39 spots up from last year’s WSJ ranking.
Doane ranked particularly well in its resources score, based on a college’s capacity to effectively deliver teaching. Selected students were surveyed to respond to their satisfaction level based on environment, career preparation, and the right “fit.” Doane received an 8.5/10 score or higher in all three categories.
The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education evaluated hundreds colleges across the country, surveying over 200,000 students. As described in their methodology, the ranking includes results of “The US Student Survey, which examines a range of key issues including students’ engagement with their studies, their interaction with their teachers, and their satisfaction with their experience.” The overall methodology explores four key areas: resources, engagement, outcomes, and environment.
Doane’s WSJ ranking adds to a long list of recognition the university has received from national publications ranking colleges for 2018. Doane has been named to Forbes’ “America’s Best Colleges” list, named a “Top National Liberal Arts College” by U.S. News and World Report, and a “Best Midwestern School” by The Princeton Review, to name a few.
