A #1 public university for student engagement

Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education College Rankings

Bowling Green State University is among the highest-ranked schools for student engagement, according to new rankings from the Wall Street Journal and Times Higher Education.

BGSU is tied for first place among public universities in the publications’ list of Top Schools for Engagement, which is based on scores for how engaged students feel they are with their professors and their education. When private schools are added to the list, BGSU is tied for 6th.

“We are extremely proud of these new rankings,” said BGSU President Mary Ellen Mazey. “Student engagement is a critical component of student success. We know that engaged students are better able to retain information, practice high-level critical thinking skills and apply their learning experiences in the real world.”

This inaugural ranking of U.S. colleges and universities by the Wall Street Journal and Times Higher Education is based on data from a variety of sources, including the U.S. government, The US Student Survey, The Academic Survey and the Elsevier bibliometric dataset. The overall methodology explores four key areas: resources, engagement, outcomes and environment.
