Bradley Named Among Nation's Best for Student Engagement

September 23, 2021

Bradley University is once again the top-ranked private school in Illinois and in the top 25 nationally among private institutions for student engagement. These high marks were just published in the sixth annual Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education (WSJ/THE) 2022 College Rankings.

The WSJ/THE surveyed over 170,000 current students based on 15 factors in four main categories (outcomes, engagement, resources and environment) to develop their rankings. Using additional data from government and other sources, the survey’s focus is to determine how well colleges prepare students for life after graduation. The full rankings are available at the WSJ; this is a subscription site.

Additional noteworthy mentions:

  • Bradley ranked just behind the University of Illinois for student engagement among private AND public schools in Illinois in the WSJ/THE 2022 College Rankings.
  • Earlier this month, U.S. News & World Report ranked Bradley best in the state in numerous categories. You can view that announcement here.
