Loyola University Maryland has been named one of the nation’s “Best Universities” by The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education in its 2021 higher education rankings.

Loyola ranked No. 220 (tied) on the list of 797 U.S. colleges and universities.

“This ranking emphasizes student success outcomes and includes the opinion of current students on a range of key issues including student engagement,” said Eric Nichols, vice president for enrollment management. “To be listed among the top third of all universities based on these important metrics is a testament to the strong liberal arts focused education that we provide at Loyola.”

The universities are ranked based on 15 individual performance indicators and responses from more than 200,000 current college students, collected through Times Higher Education’s annual U.S. Student Survey. Schools are ranked on criteria including resources, engagement, environment, and outcomes.

Outcomes was one of Loyola’s strongest areas, ranking high for graduation rate and graduate salary.
