Stevenson Named a “Best Value School” in the 2023 U.S. News Best Colleges Rankings
For the fifth year in a row, Stevenson University has been named among the nation’s “Best Value Schools” in the U.S. News and World Report annual college rankings. The 2023 Best Colleges listings, released Monday, September 12, also ranked Stevenson among the “Best Regional Universities-North” and “Best Colleges for Veterans.”
To assign a college or university the “Best Value” designation in its annual rankings, U. S. News evaluates an institution’s academic quality and its net cost of attendance after the average level of need-based financial aid through grants and scholarships. The higher the academic quality and the lower the cost, the better the value for students.
“We are pleased to be recognized again among the ‘Best Value Schools’ in our region and the nation,” said Elliot Hirshman, President of Stevenson University. “At Stevenson, we are committed to ensuring access to an exceptional college experience. We believe the value of a Stevenson education comes not only through our commitment to academic excellence and providing a range of institutional aid and scholarship programs, but also by creating a supportive community in which students have many opportunities to pursue their visions for success.” These opportunities include leadership, service, and honors programs; collaborative research and scholarship with faculty; the arts, music, film, and theater; 29 Division III athletic programs as well as club and intramural sports; esports; mock trial; clubs and organizations; and many other distinctive co-curricular and extracurricular opportunities.
Founded in 1947, Stevenson University serves more than 2,700 traditional undergraduates on its campus in Owings Mills, Maryland, as well as graduate and professional students through Stevenson University Online and doctoral students in the university’s Doctor of Psychology program. Stevenson’s mission is to provide exceptional experiences in and out of the classroom, career connections that foster students’ professional success after college, and a supportive community in which all students can grow intellectually, socially, and professionally.
