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.

The Nielsen company says four NFL games finished among its top 12 prime time shows last week, led by the Sunday night matchup between Philadelphia and Atlanta.

NBC won the network ratings race for the week with football and "America's Got Talent."

Beckham puts on show in MetLife return, Browns top Jets 23-3

Sep 18, 2019

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Odell Beckham Jr. had an 89-yard touchdown catch and a spectacular one-handed grab in his return to MetLife Stadium, and Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns did just enough to beat the short-handed and banged-up New York Jets 23-3 on Monday night. Beckham, traded from the Giants in March, helped the Browns (1-1) bounce back from a 30-point loss to Tennessee in their opener to top the Jets (0-2). New York lost quarterback Trevor Siemian to an ankle injury in the second quarter, and Luke Falk — promoted from the practice squad earlier in the day...

Video deleted from Minnesota first lady's tense policy forum

Sep 18, 2019

ST. PAUL, Minn. — A deleted video from a forum that turned tense over racial issues demonstrates some of the political risks in Minnesota first lady Gwen Walz's push for criminal justice reform. Walz and staffers in the governor's office wanted to promote an upcoming PBS documentary about rigorous college coursework for prison inmates because they want to replicate the concept in Minnesota — and to raise her profile as a leader on criminal justice issues. But not everything went according to plan. Minnesota Public Radio reported Monday that a forum at Twin Cities Public Television one day last May...

Sep 18, 2019

NEW YORK — Last time out, documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock ate only fast food for a month. This time, he's the one dishing out the fried stuff. Spurlock has gone from being an avid Big Mac consumer in "Super Size Me" to serving his own chicken sandwiches in "Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken!" — a sober look at an industry that processes 9 billion animals a year in America. "I think the intention is to kind of give you a different perspective of the fast-food world — the fast-food commodity world — from a much more corporate point of...
