The University of Iowa has improved its 2020 U.S. News & World Report standings, climbing four spots to No. 34 in the touted rankings of national public universities. "We put a high value on both quality teaching and in providing undergraduates with robust research opportunities, as well as internships and jobs that prepare our students after they graduate".

College of the Atlantic was ranked the best value at ninth, the highest rank among ME schools, followed by Bowdoin at 12th, Colby at 16th and Bates at 39th. Harrisburg University was ranked No. 21 among 31 schools to make the list from the same region.

The graduation-rate performance category uses the university's six-year graduation rate and compares it to predicted performance based on admissions data, school financial resources, the proportion of federal financial aid recipients who are first-generation (a new factor), math and science orientations and the proportion of undergraduates receiving Pell grants.

The rankings show the university's reputation continuing to rise, as SC earned the No. 22 spot among flagship universities in the country and was ranked No. 44 among public universities. Wagner has appeared in the top 25% of schools in its category for more than 20 years.
