Earlier this week, Forbes released its America’s Top Colleges Ranking 2015. For the institutions that made the cut, current students, alumni, professors, and prospective students have many reasons to be proud. The U.S. is home to thousands of colleges and universities, Forbes salutes 650.
Higher learning institutions place tremendous value in not just being an accredited institution, but in rising in the ranks to become a prestigious, accredited recognition. These rankings influence budget, decisions for the prospective student, the nature of prospective students, funding, reputation, alumni contribution, and many other crucial elements to the schools. For historically black colleges representing less that 1% of colleges and universities, making a nationally-acclaimed list is even more exciting! Congratulations to the twelve HBCU representing!
