U.S. News & World Report released its annual rankings of America’s graduate schools on Tuesday, and Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College placed No. 11 among the best graduate colleges of education, public and private, in the nation. Among public universities, the college was ranked No. 4. 

The No. 11 spot continues Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College’s six-year climb in the rankings, from 14th last year and No. 35 in 2012, making it the fastest-rising college of education in the U.S.

Carole Basile, dean of the college, said,

“In the world of higher education, the U.S. News & World Report ranking of graduate schools plays a large role. Rankings are just one indicator of quality and progress. But our trend line makes a strong case that our college has done outstanding work for a considerable period of time. A trend line like that is signal, not noise. It's worth recognizing and celebrating.”

Basile gave credit to faculty, staff and students for the college’s highest-ever ranking. “They make our college a vibrant, innovative learning community that shows up every day ready to think, design and work our way to insight and solutions together,” she said.
