U.S. News and World Report just published its popular college ranking report, and for the second year in a row, Brooklyn College ranks #1 among North Regional Universities for campus ethnic diversity.
The College also ranked #3 for least debt at graduation and #3 for the social mobility of its graduates.
“We are especially proud of our #1 ranking for campus ethnic diversity because it is a reflection of our mission to educate immigrants, first-generation college students, and others who represent the diversity of this great borough,” said Brooklyn College President Michelle J. Anderson.
“This is an exciting moment for Brooklyn College, as these high-profile rankings reinforce the exceptional educational value that we provide to our students.”
Last month, Brooklyn College was ranked #35 “Best Colleges for Your Money” by Money magazine out of 744 schools nationwide for quality, affordability, and alumni success. The Money rankings examine factors like net costs after financial aid, the amount typically borrowed through federal programs, loan default and repayment rates, and the institution’s effectiveness in moving low-income students into the middle class and beyond over the past 20 years.
Other CUNY colleges ranked for affordability include John Jay College of Criminal Justice (53), Queens College (100), Lehman College (110), The City College of New York (115), Hunter College (128), and the College of Staten Island (418).
Both Forbes and The Princeton Review also listed Brooklyn College as one of the Best Value Colleges in the country in 2019.
