Full Title: UMBC Tops U.S. News & World Report's 'Up and Coming' List

UMBC is proud to be recognized as a national leader in higher education by the U.S. News & World Report America’s Best Colleges Guide.

>> #1 public national university in undergraduate teaching, where we tied with Stanford at 4th among all national universities, just behind Dartmouth, Princeton and Yale.

This recognition points to what makes UMBC distinctive: our community successfully combines a deep commitment to undergraduate education with achievements in graduate education and research. Faculty and students create active learning communities inside and outside the classroom and take full advantage of the educational, business, cultural and recreational resources of Baltimore and Washington, DC. Our 12,000 students from more than 150 countries find that our medium-size community is large enough to offer exciting experiences and small enough to care.

U.S. News & World Report's "Keep an Eye on These Schools" includes a list of all colleges and universities that "have recently made the most promising and innovative changes in academics, faculty, students, campus, or faciliites." UMBC has also been singled out for our commitment to undergraduate teaching, and as an outstanding example of academic programs that are linked to student success.
