Saint Xavier University receives new, higher ranking – best in seven years

Among top five private master’s universities in IL

Chicago (Aug. 24, 2009) Saint Xavier University ranks 34 among 146 institutions in U.S. News & World Report’s 2010 ranking of Best Colleges in the Midwest offering undergraduate and master’s degrees.

The annual ranking puts Saint Xavier University in its best position of the past seven years and places it in the top 23 percent of the field. It is among the top five private master’s universities in Illinois. U.S. News bases its rankings on academic reputation, financial resources, graduation and retention, student selectivity, faculty resources, and alumni giving.

Additionally, Saint Xavier placed sixth for racial diversity in the Midwest and moved up to seventh place in terms of economic diversity, which reflects the number of students from low-income families receiving Pell grants.

“I am very pleased to see that we are advancing and continuing to see growth in the rankings, emphasizing what Saint Xavier University stands for which is ‘success with purpose,’” said University President Judith A. Dwyer, Ph.D. “The rankings are further proof of the Saint Xavier community’s commitment to academic excellence and continued growth as a leading comprehensive Catholic university in the greater Midwest.”

Saint Xavier’s overall rank has advanced 12 places since Dwyer became president in October of 2003.

I do think that you need to publish more on this topic, it might not be a taboo matter but usually folks don't speak about these topics. To the next! Many thanks!!

If you might be planning to select a unique watch, knowing your purpose of owning it
could be the first thing. Women, today like Danika Patrick are
creating a name in, the once male dominated sport of high speed
racing. Sticking to your budget plus your price range may
be the smartest thing to do.
