Stevenson Among Top 20 Percent in WSJ Rankings

In September, Stevenson was ranked among the top 20 percent of colleges and universities nationally in average annual salary earned by its graduates and in the diversity of its student body as determined by the inaugural Wall Street Journal/ Times Higher Education College and University Rankings.

The rankings also surveyed students directly on three factors, whether 1) they consider that their college was the right choice for them; 2) is it worth the money; and 3) their education effectively provides preparation for a career. Student respondents “strongly agreed” that Stevenson meet all three criteria.

The WSJ/Times rankings include only 1,061 U.S. colleges and universities that completed the survey out 4,000 institutions nationwide. These rankings take a deeper look at factors such as student engagement, campus environment, and postgraduate success as measures of educational quality. Says Kevin J. Manning, Ph.D., “All of these results testify to the value of a Stevenson education and the hard work and commitment of people throughout our campus community.”

Cheryl Wilson

On Aug. 16, Cheryl Wilson, Ph.D., took the role of Dean of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences. Wilson has an extensive background in teaching, scholarship, and administrative leadership.

According to Susan Gorman, Ph.D., Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs, Wilson’s career reflects “a high level of energy, enthusiasm, and focus.” Wilson, who earned her Ph.D. in English from the University of Delaware, most recently served as the Chair of the Klein Family School of Communications Design at the University of Baltimore. Other positions she held at UB included the Yale Gordon College of Arts and Sciences Dean’s Fellow, the Special Assistant to the President (Student Success Initiative), and the Program Director for English.

Prior to her time at the University of Baltimore, Wilson served as the Coordinator of the M.A. Program in Literature at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. “Dr. Wilson impressed members of the Stevenson University community with her extensive knowledge of higher education issues, her successes in the important area of assessing student learning, and her strong work ethic,” Gorman says.
