BGSU ranks No. 3 for teaching quality among America's public universities

“There is no higher affirmation of BGSU’s commitment to student success than the recognition of the quality of our teaching and our students overwhelmingly saying they would choose us again"

Bowling Green State University has again been recognized as one of the best universities in the country for teaching quality by the Wall Street Journal and Times Higher Education.

BGSU ranks No. 3 among all public universities in the country, placing it in the top one percent of the more than 800 U.S. colleges and universities analyzed. The study defines quality of teaching by “how well it manages to inform, inspire and challenge students."

BGSU also ranks high for student satisfaction. When asked, “would you choose your college again,” the number of Bowling Green State University students answering “yes” places the University as the No. 1 public university in Ohio.

The WSJ/THE rankings are “designed to answer the questions that matter most to students and their families when making one of the most important decisions of their lives—who to trust with their education.”

“There is no higher affirmation of BGSU’s commitment to student success than the recognition of the quality of our teaching and our students overwhelmingly saying they would choose us again,” said BGSU President Rodney K. Rogers. “As a public university for the public good, our mission is to provide our students an outstanding education at a great value. With the leadership of our world-class faculty, we’re helping them design a purposeful and meaningful life so they can succeed both professionally and personally.”

Important factors in the calculation of the WSJ/THE rankings are students’ own reports of their experiences. The survey captures key milestones in a student’s educational journey with their institution, covering motivation, engagement with learning, career impact, and satisfaction and value.
