In its 2020 Best Colleges rankings out today, U.S. News & World Report lists Rockhurst among the Best Universities in the Midwest Region, as well as one of the Best Values.

The University was ranked No. 13 among Midwest regional universities, the highest-ranked institution in the Kansas City area.

The ranking among the best regional universities wasn’t the only accolade for Rockhurst — the University was also listed as No. 23 among Midwest regional universities on the “Best Values” list, leading the Kansas City area in that category as well, and No. 8 on the list of Best Colleges for Veterans in the region.

“Any day you are recognized among the best institutions in the nation is a good day,” said Doug Dunham, Ph.D., provost and senior vice president for academic affairs. “But to also be ranked for value highlights that Rockhurst University can deliver a high-quality, transformative education without sacrificing accessibility."
