UW-Green Bay is top-tier, among best for veterans in U.S. News rankings

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is ranked in the top tier regionally and listed among the best universities for veterans in the annual U.S. News and World Report Best Colleges list, set for release Tuesday, Sept. 9.

UW-Green Bay is ranked No. 77 in the “Best Regional Universities — Midwest” category, down slightly from No. 65 a year ago. Prior to 2011, UW-Green Bay generally was listed in the “Best National Liberal Arts Colleges” category, which ranks schools that emphasize undergraduate education. Colleges in the “Best Regional Universities” category offer a full range of undergraduate programs and provide a certain level of graduate education at the master’s level.

In addition to its top-tier ranking, UW-Green Bay also is listed among the 2015 Best Colleges for Veterans, coming in at No. 26 in the Midwest. This is the second year U.S. News has compiled the veterans rankings, which are designed to provide military veterans and active-duty service members with information on which schools offer benefits to help them pursue an education.

“UW-Green Bay is pleased to once again be ranked as a top-tier Midwestern University,” said UW-Green Bay Chancellor Gary L. Miller. “Furthermore, we are proud to be recognized for our dedication to student veterans and all those who serve. We look forward to building on our strengths in the year ahead.”
