MARTIN, Tenn. — The University of Tennessee at Martin continued in the top tier for southern master’s level universities in the 2015 U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges rankings released this week. UT Martin was also ranked for the first time among southern regional institutions in the Best Colleges for Veterans category.

“The U.S. News rankings show that UT Martin maintains a strong reputation in this region and beyond,” said Dr. Tom Rakes, university chancellor. “Rankings offer only a snapshot of any institution, but I’m pleased to have this recognition for prospective students and their families to use when choosing a college to attend.”

Colleges are ranked against their peers using information submitted in a survey completed by the institutions and other sources. Categories used to determine the U.S. News rankings and to measure academic quality include peer assessment, average freshman retention and graduation rates, and faculty and financial resources.

Earlier in August, The Princeton Review named the university among the “Best in the Southeast” for 2015. The list is part of the company’s website feature “2015 Best Colleges: Region by Region” posted on UT Martin has been included in this listing for 12 consecutive years.
