2021 Daemen graduates

For the sixth consecutive year, Daemen College has earned a position in the prestigious Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education (WSJ/THE) College Rankings.

The 2022 list includes 600 higher education institutions across the United States, including public and private colleges and universities.

“We are honored that Daemen has earned this national distinction yet again,” said Gary Olson, president of Daemen. “We’re proud, but not surprised, that our growing academic reputation is drawing notice around the country.”

According to WSJ/THE, the rankings focused mainly on the level of student success and learning across institutions.

Specifically, each institution was ranked based on how well it engaged with students, its “added value” to students, the diversity of its learning environment, as well as the resources dedicated to students and families. 

The ranking includes results from the US Student Survey by THE, which focuses on critical issues including students’ engagement with their studies, faculty-student interaction, and overall student satisfaction with their higher education experience. 

In addition, data from a variety of sources were used to establish the rankings: the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS); the College Scorecard; the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA); the THE Academic Survey; and the Elsevier bibliometric dataset.
