The 2024 U.S. News & World Report university rankings came out Monday, and the University of Tennessee at Martin is tied for 27th among Southern regional universities.
The annual ranking by the magazine separates college and universities into “national universities” and “regional universities,” the latter being ranked for North, South, Midwest and West regions.
Institutions such as the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, the University of Alabama and Duke University are considered to be “national universities” and are not listed among regional colleges and universities in the South region, so it makes for a more uniform comparison.
U.S. News & World Report takes into account a school’s graduation rate, first-year retention rate, first-generation student graduation rates student-faculty ratio and peer assessment.
UT Martin tied for 27th among regional universities in the South with the Mississippi University for Women, the University of West Florida and Johnson University.
UT Martin tied for eighth among regional universities in the South in the best colleges for veterans category and ranked 26th among regional universities of the South in best value.
