WESTFIELD STATE UNIVERSITY AMONG TOP PUBLIC UNIVERSITIES

Westfield State University is again one of Massachusetts’ top public universities among its peers according to U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Colleges 2021” ranking list, which was released today. The rankings underscore the University’s commitment to accessibility, affordability and intentional outcomes.

In this year’s release, Westfield State is ranked 90th among 170 institutions in the “Regional Universities–North.” It is ranked ahead of its peer Massachusetts state universities in both that category, as well as among the U.S. News “Best Public Schools,” where it placed #26.

Rankings were determined by a number of factors including a peer assessment, retention and graduation rates, faculty resources, class sizes, student/faculty ratio, student selectivity, and alumni giving rate.  

“We are proud to receive this noteworthy recognition,” said Roy H. Saigo, Ph.D., interim president of Westfield State University. “The University meets students’ needs by providing pathways to an accessible, high-quality, affordable, comprehensive education and experience.”  

The exclusive rankings are available at 2021 Best Colleges and published in U.S. News & World Report’s 2021 edition of “Best Colleges,” available on newsstands.
