Faulkner ranks high in cultural diversity says U.S. News

MONTGOMERY, AL - Faulkner University ranked 5th among "Regional Colleges: South" in cultural diversity in the 2011 edition of Best Colleges by U.S. News Media Group. The ranking comes in regards to the University's racially and ethnically diverse student population. Twenty two different countries are represented on the Faulkner campus.

"The recognition as one of the top culturally diverse regional colleges in the South reflects the University's commitment to providing educational opportunities for diverse learners at our main campus in Montgomery, our extended campuses in Birmingham, Huntsville and Mobile, and our extended sites throughout Alabama and Mississippi," said Dr. Joel Farrell, director of the Faulkner's internal assessment and evaluation center, C.A.R.E. 

The ranking follows in the wake of Faulkner earning #64 spot among "Best Regional Colleges: South." Faulkner was among 1,400 schools nationwide assessed by the institution. The key measures of quality used were peer assessment, graduation and retention rates, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources and alumni giving. 

The exclusive ranking will be published in the September issue of U.S. News & World Report, on newsstands starting August 31. "As a dynamic and growing liberal arts institution, this ranking validates our focus on excellence in educating the whole person," says Farrell.
