Sept. 15, 2017 La Grande, Ore. − Eastern Oregon University is again ranked among the best regional universities in the West, and has been recognized with numerous other distinctions.
US News & World Report published its annual list of Best Colleges and Universities in the nation, and EOU appeared in online and regional categories. The university landed just outside the nation’s top 100 online bachelor’s programs, and also made the list for its online MBA degree. Overall, EOU scored among the best 125 regional universities in the West for the second year in a row.
The nationally recognized list is generated based on a host of factors. U.S. News gathers data for 15 different indicators of academic quality, such as first-year student retention rates, faculty resources, admissions selectivity, financial resources, alumni giving and graduation rate.
EOU’s focus on teaching, innovative learning experiences, vibrant campus and successful graduates earned inclusion as a 2017-18 College of Distinction. The ranking assesses professional evaluations, personal connection with faculty, inclusive community and preparation for life after graduation. The university was also named a Public College of Distinction and an Oregon College of Distinction.
As EOU takes active steps to reach its 2029 goals as laid out in the strategic plan, the institution anticipates delivering on an increasing number of these and other indicators. Other recent distinctions include recognition of EOU’s online liberal arts, early childhood education, and business programs.
