JHCOE Improves National Ranking by 18 Spots in One Year

The University of Toledo’s Judith Herb College of Education  improved its national ranking by 18 spots in one year.

U.S. News & World Report ranked UT’s Judith Herb College of Education No. 172 out of 256 schools as part of its 2018 Best Graduate Schools edition. That is up from No. 190 last year.

 Contributing factors are higher research expenditure and higher selectivity.

“The Judith Herb College of Education continues to strive to improve the quality of all of our programs,” said Dr. Virginia Keil, interim dean of the college. “This recognition validates the quality of our faculty and the excellence of our students. Our increase in rank mirrors our upturn in graduate-level enrollment, both of which reflects the college’s rising reputation.”

The rankings are based on fall 2016 data.

Since her arrival in July 2015, UT President Sharon L. Gaber has made boosting the University’s national reputation one of her main goals.

“I am proud that the U.S. News rankings reflect the progress being made in the Colleges of Law and Education,” Gaber said. “These are important measures that contribute to student success, and a double-digit climb in one year is a significant accomplishment.”
