NDNU Ranked Among Best Regional Universities by U.S. News & World Report

Belmont, CA, August 18, 2010 — Notre Dame de Namur University has once again been ranked among the best regional universities in the West in the U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges Rankings.

“We are proud to have been ranked again as one of the best universities in the west,” said NDNU President Judith Maxwell Greig. “Our students, faculty and staff continue to strive to offer a quality education and unique learning opportunities, creating a community committed to excellence.”

President Greig also noted that while the US News rankings take into account many important measures of quality, they also miss many others, including those that many students find extremely important. “At NDNU our students have an opportunity to engage directly with the community that surrounds us, implementing what they learn in the classroom to deal with real-world issues.  We believe this real-world learning is essential to any quality university education,” she added.
