U.S. News & World Report has singled out The College of Wooster as one of the top 10 colleges in America that “do the best job of teaching undergraduates,” according to a survey of college presidents, provosts, and admissions deans. The new ranking was released as part of the 2010 edition of America’s Best Colleges.
Wooster was also recognized, for the eighth consecutive year, for having “outstanding” undergraduate research opportunities and a “stellar” senior capstone experience: Independent Study.
“Excellence in teaching and mentoring students, culminating in the one-on-one research experience of Independent Study, is at the absolute heart of what we do at Wooster,” said President Grant H. Cornwell. “So it’s particularly gratifying to have that commitment recognized by our peers.”
The other liberal arts colleges that ranked in the top ten for their commitment to teaching were Pomona, Swarthmore, Davidson, Oberlin, Earlham, Carleton, Haverford, Williams, and Reed.
The College of Wooster is an independent liberal arts college, nationally recognized for an innovative curriculum that emphasizes mentored, independent research. Each Wooster senior works one-on-one with a faculty adviser to create an original research project, written work, performance, or art exhibit. Founded in 1866, the college enrolls approximately 1,800 students.
