Wake Forest University ranked 19th on Forbes list
June 23, 2008
Wake Forest University is ranked 19th among national universities in a recent higher education ranking developed by the Center for College Affordability and Productivity (CCAP).
The rankings were published last month in Forbes magazine and appear on the publication’s Web site at Forbes.com.
According to Richard Vedder, the director of the nonprofit research center in Washington, D.C., the new CCAP ranking evaluates colleges on results by measuring student satisfaction and success after graduation.
Factors considered in the new rankings include graduation rates, student satisfaction with courses and professors, and the percentage of students winning Rhodes and Fulbright scholarships.
“It is likely this type of ranking will become increasingly important, and we expect to continue to do very well precisely because of the kind of personal attention and rigorous curriculum we offer,” said Wake Forest University Provost Jill Tiefenthaler.
