Alabama State University received a notable increase in its rankings by U. S. News & World Report. The publication recently released finds that measure undergraduate education quality among the nation’s colleges and universities, including historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).

ASU is now ranked 22nd  among HBCUs nationwide, advancing 10 spaces from last year, and ranked second among HBCUs in the state of Alabama. The national media outlet’s ranking considers several factors, including outcomes, expert opinion, faculty resources, financial resources and student excellence.

“ASU’s new rank affirms our efforts as we continue to move ASU forward 150 years and beyond,” said ASU President, Dr. Quinton T. Ross, Jr.

“Certainly, this ranking is something about which we are proud; but the increase, more than the rank, is a great testament of the innovative and progressive efforts of our faculty, staff, students and alumni even in the midst of a pandemic. Rest assured, this is a collaborative effort. We all have played a part. From our strategic planning to our increased program offerings to our strides with online education, we are invigorated now more than ever to continue to move our University forward,” Ross added.

ASU was also ranked 32nd regionally among the top public universities in the South and 94th nationally among top-performers on social mobility.

“We are truly gratified by this news, and this ranking underscores the commitment we have to our students,” Ross said.
