Furman University has been recognized by U.S. News and World Report for its commitment to strong undergraduate teaching.

In the most recent U.S. News rankings, Furman was listed No. 11 among the nation’s liberal arts colleges that are “committed to teaching undergraduate students in a high-quality manner.”

Based on a survey conducted in spring 2013 by Ipsos Public Affairs, the schools on the list received the most votes from top college administrators who were asked to nominate up to 10 schools in their ranking category that were dedicated to strong undergraduate teaching.

Others listed among the top 22 schools in the category were Davidson, Swarthmore, Williams, Reed and Oberlin colleges.

According to U.S. News, the Best Undergraduate Teaching rankings “focus attention on one very important part of the undergraduate academic experience that is not always directly measured in a college’s regular peer assessment survey results and in its overall rank.”
