Clemson University has been ranked as number 30 among national public institutions, according to the 2022 U.S. News & World Report released Sept. 13, 2021. This is the 16th consecutive year that Clemson has ranked in the top 30 universities nationwide.
The ranking was determined through 17 key measures of academic quality, which include social mobility graduation rate, and alumni donation rate. The top performers in each ranking are then given a score out of 100, and the others are then ranked in comparison to the top performers.
The report also nodded to Clemson’s undergraduate programs in engineering, nursing, and computer science, which were recognized as among the best in the nation. Specifically, industrial engineering and accounting were nominated by other institutions as top programs at Clemson.
Clemson provost Bob Jones stated, “The value of a Clemson degree, and the impact Clemson University continues to make on the citizens of the State of South Carolina, remain our highest priority... It’s always great to be recognized among national leaders in these rankings, especially by our peer institutions for specific programs and colleges.”
