Autumn 2010: Of Note
University Ranked Twenty
National benchmark places Goizueta at thirteen
For the eighteenth consecutive year, Emory is among the top twenty national universities in U.S. News & World Report’s annual “America’s Best Colleges” quality rankings. Emory’s Goizueta Business School was thirteenth in the rankings of undergraduate business programs.
Emory shared the distinction with Rice University of being the only two top-twenty institutions also listed in the top twenty for best value (“Great Schools, Great Prices”) and on the top twenty “Up and Comers” list of schools having recently made the most promising and innovative changes in the areas of academics, faculty, student life, campus, or facilities.
Emory also was cited for its economic diversity, ranking sixth among national universities, with 14 percent of undergraduates receiving need-based Pell grants. In 2007, the University initiated Emory Advantage, a financial aid program to help lower- and middle-income undergraduate students and families reduce debt.
Emory ranked tenth nationally in percentage of alumni giving, with an average of 36 percent of alumni contributing to the school during a two-year period. The University is in the midst of Campaign Emory, a $1.6 billion fund-raising endeavor.
