These are the best US colleges for student engagement

Study International | September 06, 2019

International students should take note of the Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education 2020 College Rankings published earlier this week. Examining four key areas – resources for effective teaching, engagement with students, graduate outcomes and learning environment – the ranking differs from other major league tables for its emphasis on students over research output. Overall, the country’s Ivy League institutions were the best US colleges in the student-focused rankings.
At the top of the list is Harvard University, with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Yale University, University of Pennsylvania, California Institute of Technology and Princeton University rounding up the top five. Data for the ranking were sourced from the US government (Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), the US Department of Education’s Federal Student Aid (FSA), the College Scorecard, the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), Times Higher Education’s (THE) US Student Survey, the THE Academic Survey, and the Elsevier bibliometric dataset.
