The 2009 edition of U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges” names William Jewell among the nation’s top 186 national liberal arts colleges. Jewell’s ranking is among colleges that focus almost exclusively on undergraduate education and that award at least 50 percent of their degrees in the arts and sciences.

The magazine’s annual rankings are based on such factors as peer assessment, graduation and retention rates, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources, alumni giving and graduation rate performance. William Jewell is the only national liberal arts college in the Kansas City region.

William Jewell advanced in this year’s rankings in percentage of alumni giving, recording an increase from 19% to 21%. This figure reflects the average percentage of living alumni with bachelor’s degrees who contributed to William Jewell during 2005-06 and 2006-07. Alumni giving rate is considered to be one measure of student satisfaction.

William Jewell was recently named among “America’s Best Colleges” in a new ranking published by Forbes Magazine (#249 of 569 institutions ranked), and was listed among The Princeton Review’s “The Best 368 Colleges” for 2009. Only about 15% of the country’s four-year colleges and universities are considered for these top-tier rankings.

William Jewell College is committed to bringing together talented students and gifted faculty mentors within a vibrant community sparked by a rigorous and intentional liberal arts curriculum. A full range of personal and professional development experiences are presented by the selective national liberal arts college’s location within a metroplex of 1.5 million.
