The Wall Street Journal recently released its inaugural Times Higher Education College Rankings, which has Bradley University as one of the best institutions in the U.S.
In the category of student engagement, Bradley tied for sixth and tied for first in schools that have no religious affiliations.
When speaking about the academic engagement of the students at Bradley, which received the highest ranking among Illinois institutions in its area and fourth in the Midwest, Provost Walter Zakahi said that it was at the heart of the "Bradley experience."
"Collaboration and experiential learning are core values at Bradley,” he said. “We emphasize real-world learning opportunities across the curriculum, and that results in exceptional mentoring opportunities between faculty and students."
The Times Higher Education College Rankings by the Wall Street Journal took into account the results of a survey that asked the opinion of 100,000 college students. The survey asked about student experience and interaction with professors, including the amount of time spent collaborating on projects; whether students were challenged to think in critical terms; as well as the likelihood of students recommending the school to others.
