The University of Michigan-Flint has been recognized for its excellence by the U.S. News & World Report in its “Best Colleges” rankings.

UM-Flint was designated as one of the top regional universities in the Midwest by the publication, tied for #32 among public universities in the category. This is the ninth consecutive year UM-Flint has been recognized as a Best Midwest Regional University by U.S. NewsUM-Flint’s engineering and business programs were also singled out for recognition by the publication.

UM-Flint Chancellor Susan E. Borrego said, “The University of Michigan-Flint is proud to be recognized as one of the top regional universities in the Midwest by U.S. News & World Report. This reflects the longstanding tradition of academic excellence at UM-Flint. It is a testament to the continuing commitment of our outstanding faculty, staff, and students to building a vibrant campus and community.”

The rankings factor in several weighted indicators of academic quality, such as freshman retention, graduation of students, faculty resources, student selectivity, alumni giving, graduation rate performance, and financial resources.

This is just the latest recognition UM-Flint has received. Recently, it was again designated a “Gold Level” school by the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency (MVAA). That is the highest level awarded by the state agency for recognizing higher education institutions for their veteran services.
