UI moves up in U.S. News Rankings
The University of Iowa is improving. At least, according to one ranking service.

U.S. News & World Report on Tuesday released its annual rankings of the top colleges in the country, bumping Iowa up by four spots to No. 78, in a tie with Miami University of Ohio. Among public institutions, the UI ranks 31st, an improvement of two places.

The UI’s Tippie College of Business and College of Engineering each made moves up the list, as well. The Tippie College of Business moved up two spots to 31st among all programs and 20th for public universities; the College of Engineering also gained two spots to No. 61. It ranks 34th among public universities with doctoral programs.

President Bruce Harreld has stressed since he was hired two years that the university needs to improve its place in these rankings, saying it comes down to retaining high-quality faculty by improving faculty pay.

Princeton University is ranked as the top university in the country overall. The University of California-Berkeley is the highest ranked public university at 21st overall.
