Albright College ranks as a Top National Liberal Arts College and as a Top National Liberal Arts College Performer on Social Mobility via the U.S. News and World Report’s newly released 2022 rankings.
U.S. News and World Report’s 2022 Best Colleges rankings assess 1,466 U.S. bachelor’s degree-granting institutions on 17 measures of academic quality.
Earning top 32 social mobility spot for 2022, Albright has been named a Top Performer on Social Mobility every year since the measure launched, in 2020. The list recognizes national colleges that are more successful than others at enrolling and seeing economically-disadvantaged students through to graduation.
Recognizing that almost half of Albright students are the first in their family to attend college and a significant number are Pell recipients, the college continues to advance offerings in support of students who face academic and social challenges. Proactive student-centered infrastructure, like the Lifting up Lions initiative, combined with team advising initiatives like Lions’ Edge, and faculty development programs aim to strengthen teaching, learning and innovation at the college.
