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.

Sep 22, 2019

CANBERRA, Australia — Fiji's prime minister used a state visit on Monday to urge Australia to take more ambitious actions to slash greenhouse gas emissions, a month after differences on climate change policy created anger and frustration at a forum of Pacific island leaders.

New Zealand gun buyback exposes emotions, possibly hustlers

Sep 22, 2019

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — Some New Zealand gun owners are upset they're being compelled to hand over their assault weapons for money. Others believe a government-imposed ban on certain semi-automatics following a March shooting massacre is the best way to combat gun violence. And The Associated Press has found that at least one man may have tried to swindle hundreds of thousands of dollars from the system set up to compensate gun owners. New Zealand is six weeks into an ambitious program to buy tens of thousands of guns from owners across the country. After a lone gunman killed 51...

New Zealand parliament speaker soothes baby as debate rages

Sep 22, 2019

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — The man who presides over New Zealand's parliament has been called a baby whisperer. He was in action again this week, gently rocking, bottle feeding and burping a colleague's infant as a lawmaker ranted about gas prices. Speaker Trevor Mallard held baby Tutanekai for about 15 minutes during a fiery general debate Wednesday after spotting lawmaker Tamati Coffey with his 6-week-old son. Mallard said Friday he's been trying to make parliament a more baby-friendly place by adding baby chairs, family rooms and soon, a slide. He's also increased the flexibility around family leave for lawmakers. New...

Australian court upholds sex abuse verdict of Cardinal Pell

Sep 22, 2019

MELBOURNE, Australia — An Australian appeals court Wednesday upheld convictions against Cardinal George Pell, the most senior Catholic to be found guilty of sexually abusing children, in a decision cheered by scores of abuse survivors and victims' advocates demonstrating outside the court. A unanimous jury in December found Pope Francis' former finance minister guilty of molesting two 13-year-old choirboys in Melbourne's St. Patrick's Cathedral more than two decades ago. The Victoria state Court of Appeal rejected his appeal in a 2-1 ruling, with the court's chief justice saying the majority found Pell's accuser to be a compelling "witness of truth."...

Pell's appeal pitted word of former choirboy against priest

Sep 22, 2019

CANBERRA, Australia — Cardinal George Pell's appeal against his convictions for child molestation was largely a question of who the jury should have believed, his accuser or a senior priest whose church role was likened to Pell's bodyguard. Pell's accuser was a 13-year-old choirboy when he alleged that he was abused by then-Melbourne Archbishop Pell at the city's St. Patrick's Cathedral in December 1996 and February 1997. Monsignor Charles Portelli was a master of ceremonies at the 11 a.m. Sunday Masses where the choir sang. A chorister in the 1990s, David Dearing, told police that Portelli, Pell's right-hand man, was...
