The University of North Carolina Wilmington has ranked for the first time on U.S. News & World Report’s list of Best Colleges under the National Universities category, coming in at No. 185.
The university also ranked No. 92 in the Top Public Schools subcategory, for which it tied with Ohio University and the University of Houston.
“Being recognized as one of the top 100 public universities in the nation during UNCW’s first year in the national category speaks volumes about the quality of our faculty, staff and students and their commitment to excellence at every level,” Chancellor Jose Sartarelli said in a news release. “In less than a year, Hurricanes Florence and Dorian affected our institution, and yet our campus community continues to rise above challenging circumstances, building a dynamic university dedicated to student success, advanced research, and community engagement.”
