Baylor among U.S. News’ top 20 ‘most innovative schools’
If you want to reach students, you can’t be afraid to try new things. Baylor has struck an incredible balance of holding on to what’s most important (our faith, emphasis on teaching, etc.) while growing and improving across the board (Exhibit A: R1 status).
Higher ed leaders across the country are noticing Baylor’s efforts — and that shows up in lists like U.S. News‘ “Most Innovative Schools,” where Baylor ranks among the nation’s top 20, alongside such universities as MIT, Stanford, Johns Hopkins and Duke.
To create this list, U.S. News asked college presidents, provosts and admissions deans to name the schools they believe are making the most innovative improvements in terms of curriculum, faculty, students, campus life, technology, and/or facilities — “schools that the public should be watching,” as U.S. News put it.
The honor joins an ever-growing list of national accolades that address many aspects of Baylor:
- Annually among U.S. News‘ top 100 national universities
- “A” grade for core curriculum (American Council of Trustees & Alumni)
- No. 2 most-trusted university in the nation (Morning Consult)
- No. 4 for student engagement (Wall Street Journal)
- No. 10 for First-Year Experience (U.S. News)
- No. 13 most sought-after university (bold.org)
- Top-25 for both undergraduate teaching and research (U.S. News)
Sic ’em, Bears!
