March 8, 2021

KEENE, TEX. – US News & World Report continues to rank Southwestern Adventist University as one of the top institutions regionally, ranking #11 overall in Regional Colleges West and #2 for social mobility.

US News & World Report utilizes 17 factors to compile the rankings. Higher education institutions are organized into 10 distinct categories based on academic mission and into four geographical areas.

Social mobility measures institutions’ performance graduating economically disadvantaged students. Financial support, academic development and hands-on learning experiences contribute to this ranking.

“As a first-generation college student, it was important for me to find an institution that not only provided me with the academic resources that I needed but also with the financial resources,” shares Emily Hernandez, SWAU biology graduate. “That’s exactly what I found at SWAU.”
