U.S. News and World Report named Quinnipiac
University the top up-and-coming school with master’s programs in the Northern Region in its annual ranking of the nation’s best colleges.
For the fifth consecutive year, U.S. News asked education
experts to identify institutions that are making the most promising and innovative changes in the areas of academics, faculty and student life.
“For Quinnipiac, I believe it’s the excitement about our ‘three settings, one university’ approach, including our development of the Center for Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences on the North Haven Campus and the addition of the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine scheduled to open in the Fall of 2013,” said Joan Isaac Mohr, vice president and dean of admissions.
”It’s also based on the work our faculty is doing to focus on teaching and student learning outcomes and student engagement. We’ve been number or two in this category for a few years and we’re happy to see that continue.”
Quinnipiac also was ranked the top up-and-coming school
with master’s programs in the North in 2009.
Quinnipiac is a private, coeducational, nonsectarian institution located 90 minutes north of New York City and two hours from Boston.

Netter MD School of Medicine, School of Nursing and College of Arts and Sciences.
Quinnipiac consistently ranks among the top regional universities in the North in U.S. News & World Report’s America’s Best Colleges issue. Quinnipiac also is recognized in Princeton Review’s “The Best 377 Colleges.”
