CONWAY, Ark. (September 12,
2017) – Once again this year, Hendrix College is included in the 2018 U.S. News
& World Report “Best
National Liberal Arts Colleges” rankings. This year the College placed #76
on the list.
Hendrix also tied for #7 on
a ranking of the top 10 “Most
Innovative Schools,” sharing the position with Amherst College and Harvey
Mudd College. The institutions on this list are nominated by college
presidents, provosts, and admissions deans who were asked which schools are
making “the most innovative improvements in terms of curriculum, faculty,
students, campus life, technology, or facilities.” To earn a listing, a school
must receive at least seven nominations.
“Appearing yet again on the
Most Innovative Schools list reflects the quality educational experience Hendrix
is well known for providing,” said Hendrix President Bill Tsutsui.
“These rankings underscore
the College’s consistency in carrying out our motto, ‘Unto the whole person,’
in the classroom and beyond,” he continued. “Our academic quality, outstanding
faculty, and diverse options in extracurricular pursuits help Hendrix students
go on to live lives of meaning and accomplishment.”
As in previous years, Hendrix
is the only top 100 nationally ranked liberal arts college in Arkansas, and continues
to be ranked higher than any other U.S. News nationally-ranked liberal arts
college in Texas or the states surrounding it.
“We can be proud that
Arkansas is home to the best national liberal arts college in the south central
U.S.,” added Tsutsui.
