Bloomfield College ranked in U.S. News & World Report’s 2014 Best Colleges

BLOOMFIELD, N.J. (September 11, 2013) – For the third time in 2013, one of the most diverse liberal arts institutions in the country has been recognized by a national organization in its annual rankings.

U.S. News & World Report has named Bloomfield College as the ninth most diverse National Liberal Arts College in the United States, in results released by the organization Tuesday, Sept. 10. The school was also ranked as one of the top 240 National Liberal Arts Colleges in the country in the organization’s annual “Best Colleges” rankings.

Bloomfield is one of two New Jersey liberal arts colleges to be placed in the rankings, joining Drew University as representatives of the Garden State. The school was one of only 11 second tier schools to exceed the rankings’ predicted graduation rate for the institution.

The recognition comes on the heels of the institution being named as one of “America’s Top Colleges” by Forbes Magazine in July, 2013, and one of 12 New Jersey institutions giving students the highest return on investment by Affordable Colleges Online during the same month.

Diversity rankings were calculated to identify institutions where a student would most likely encounter classmates of a different ethnic group from their own. U.S. News calculated the proportion of the institution’s minority students (international students excluded) in relation to the overall student body, giving each school a score on an index ranging from zero to 1.0. Among National Liberal Arts Colleges, Bloomfield’s score of 0.63 placed the institution ninth in the nationwide rankings.

The ranking system used to evaluate National Liberal Arts Colleges uses quantitative measures that have been deemed reliable indicators of academic quality by education experts, such as graduation rates, peer assessment scores and student selectivity.

"It is an honor to once again be recognized as one of the most diverse Colleges in the country by U.S. News & World Report,” Bloomfield vice president of enrollment management Adam Castro said of the institution’s rankings. “Our student body continues to be a great representation of the multicultural and global movements of the 21st century. The exposure our students get to different cultures, ways of life and philosophies on a daily basis will not only prepare them to become better professionals, but impactful citizens of the world."

A private, four-year institution featuring 2,145 students, Bloomfield College offers over 60 majors and concentrations in both undergraduate and graduate programs.
