Detroit Mercy ranked No. 19 for Midwest Best Regional Universities and is the only university in Michigan to be listed in the top 25.

U.S. News & World Report released the rankings on Tuesday, Sept. 12.

Detroit Mercy’s No. 19 rank is higher than the No. 24 rank the University received in 2017. In addition, the University earned a No. 12 rank for Best Colleges for Veterans in the Midwest Region and was ranked No. 32 nationally for Best Value Schools and No. 13 for Best Undergraduate Business Management Programs. This is the fourth consecutive year that Detroit Mercy’s undergraduate Management program was ranked in the nation’s top 20 by U.S. News & World Report.

Detroit Mercy’s No. 19 rank is higher than the No. 24 rank the University received in 2017. In addition, the University earned a No. 12 rank for Best Colleges for Veterans."Detroit Mercy's rankings strongly affirm the quality of our talented students, high retention and graduation rates, and excellent student-to-faculty ratio," said Dr. Antoine M. Garibaldi, president of the University.  "The growing number of applicants and third consecutive year of increase in students are clearly being influenced by these rankings as the University's reputation rises," he added.

U.S. News & World Report will publish highlights of the latest college rankings in the 2018 edition of the “Best Colleges” guidebook, which goes on sale later this month on newsstands and online.

The U.S. News college rankings review more than 1,374 accredited four-year schools based on categories created by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and compares them based on a set of 16 indicators of excellence. The Carnegie classification, which higher education researchers use extensively, has been the basis of the Best Colleges ranking category system since the publication of the first rankings in 1983. The U.S. Department of Education and many higher education associations use the system to organize their data and determine colleges' eligibility for grant money.
