UIS Ranked

In the 2012 US News edition, UIS is the best public university in the “Regional University category” in the state of Illinois and was ranked second public university in that category in the entire Midwest.

In a Recent Newspaper Article, several of our students were mentioned. Nina Harris, MPA grad and president and CEO of the Springfield Urban League said that the MPA was essential in her advancement to a top leadership position. Ann Schneider, MPA grad and Secretary of the Illinois Department of Transportation, particularly recognized Dr. Beverly Bunch as influential for her. She said Dr. Bunch taught by example the importance of being respectful of other views and demonstrated the people skills important to management and leadership.

Kiplinger’s Personal Finance for 2012 ranked UIS 85th among public colleges in the nation based on cost/financial aid, student debt, competitiveness, graduation rates and academic support. The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (27th) was the only other college in the state to be ranked in the Top 100.
