- Published: October 6, 2023
Antioch College announced last week that for the first time since its reopening in 2011, the college has been listed in the latest U.S. News & World Report’s Top 100 National Liberal Arts Schools ranking.
Antioch is tied at No. 100 with six other institutions, including Earlham in Richmond, Ind.; Morehouse, in Atlanta, Ga.; and Sarah Lawrence, in Bronxville, N.Y.
Inclusion on the list “affirms a dedication to a world-class education that empowers students to become engaged, informed and socially responsible citizens,” according to a press release from the college. “
This ranking is the latest indicator of a successful turnaround, including an incoming class that is 25% larger than last year, an increase in institutional grants and student-derived revenue and a successful expansion of community-based learning and cultural programs,” the release continued.
“We are thrilled and humbled by this achievement,” Antioch President Jane Fernandes said in the release. “This recognition is a testament to the dedication of our faculty, staff and students, who have worked tirelessly to create an academic community that embodies our core values.”
