Dear Colleagues,

I am thrilled to announce that John Carroll University has moved up to the #4 spot in the 2019 U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges Rankings, among Regional Universities in the Midwest.

This is a milestone moment for our community, as it marks the 30th consecutive year that we have been recognized in the top 10 in the Midwest. Our two-spot improvement allows us to proudly say that we are the top-ranked institution in the state of Ohio in the Midwest category.

John Carroll was also recognized as:

  • #3 regionally in Best for Veterans, up from #5
  • #8 regionally in Best Value
  • #8 regionally in Most Innovative Schools
  • #172 nationally for Undergraduate Business, up from #183.

In my short time here on campus, I have observed the commitment of our faculty to their scholarly research, teaching, and engaging our students in the process of learning. Our staff is devoted to supporting our students in and out of the classroom. This ranking is a reflection of your tireless work, which has led to our graduates earning a reputation as inspired leaders who are able to act competently in a global and diverse world.

The future of our University is bright, and I look forward to working with you to continue this tradition of excellence as we enhance the reputation of John Carroll University.

Best wishes,
Michael
