The latest college and university rankings are out from US News & World Report. These influential rankings have been coming out from US News since 1983. The report assessed over 1,500 schools using 17 measures of academic quality.
The 2022-2023 college rankings report looked at 15 Maine colleges and universities-and overall Maine schools did really well! The US News rankings are split into many categories.
