CSU is No. 58 in the latest rankings and has climbed nine spots in just two years, the result of a continuous commitment to boost faculty excellence, make available more student scholarships and make capital improvements across campus.
“Colorado State’s continued investment into the academic and student experience, as well as the presence of our outstanding faculty, make CSU an even better community in which to learn,” said CSU President Tony Frank. “This latest ranking is well-deserved recognition of CSU’s continued efforts to deliver the very best academic university experience to our students.”
An A-plus school
The magazine also lists the university as an A-plus school for students who want to be a part of a university with a broad, engaged student body.
U.S. News also noted in its summary that CSU is “considered one of the nation’s leading research universities, and faculty and students work together to explore fields such as atmospheric science, infectious diseases, clean energy technologies and environmental science.”
CSU is one of the top performing research institutions in the nation, with annual research spending exceeding $300 million in Fiscal Year 2014.
