PEORIA, Ill. — Bradley University ranked for the fourth year in a row as one of the top schools in Illinois among private institutions.
The high marks are from the fourth annual Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education (WSJ/THE) 2020 College Rankings.
“Bradley prides itself on experiential learning and student engagement,” said Provost Walter Zakahi. “Our students are involved in internships and co-op experiences, service-learning initiatives, capstone projects and many other curricular and co-curricular learning opportunities. We also provide them with opportunities that emphasize real-world learning in ways that go beyond a textbook or a classroom.”
Based on 15 factors in four main categories (outcomes, engagement, resources and environment), the WSJ/THE surveyed over 174,000 current U.S. students. Using additional data from government and other sources, the survey’s focus is to determine how well colleges prepare students for life after graduation.
