William Jewell College has received high praise as the top-ranked institute of higher education in the Kansas City metro by The Wall Street Journal and Times Higher Education in their university rankings.
The college found a place in the top third of the country’s best 1,054 colleges and universities. The Wall Street Journal/THE overall rankings use a weighted formula of four categories made up of 15 indicators, including faculty-student ratios, faculty research, graduation rates, faculty/student diversity and more.
Jewell ranked in the top 20 percent of institutions in the category of resources, which include faculty-student ratio, faculty research and finance per student. The college was also in the top third of institutions in the category of student engagement, based largely on a student survey that notably found students are highly engaged and would recommend Jewell to others.
Jewell’s overall ranking placed it higher than Rockhurst University, the University of Missouri-Kansas City, Truman State University and even the University of Missouri-Columbia.
