Over the past few years, Merrimack has been making many improvements to the campus, curriculum, student services, and more. These improvements have not gone unnoticed as Merrimack College has been named a “Top 50 Comprehensive College” by the U.S. News & World Report for the third consecutive year!

In order to create their list, the magazine surveyed more than 1800 colleges and universities, ranking 1400 institutions using 17 metrics to assess academic quality.

Merrimack ranked on multiple lists of the top schools in the U.S. News & World Report. This includes being ranked one of the top 10 “Most Innovative” schools. 

Merrimack ranked in the following categories:

#45 in Regional Universities North (tie)

#16 in Best Undergraduate Teaching (tie)

#37 in Best Value Schools

#9 in Most Innovative Schools (tie)

#148 in Top Performers on Social Mobility (tie)

#123 in Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs (tie)

Merrimack moved up from being 46th place last year to 45th on the 2021 Best Regional Northeast colleges list. Merrimack also made a big leap from being 35th last year to being 16th this year for best undergraduate teaching programs for regional universities in the North category. This is an amazing accomplishment for the Merrimack community.

“Our investment in new faculty and expanded course offerings and enhancing opportunities for our students is the cornerstone of what we do,” President Christopher Hopey said. “This recognition by U.S. News & World Report is a wonderful endorsement of what our talented community of faculty, staff and students are doing every day.”

Merrimack has been growing in enrollments, programs, and buildings, and this growth has helped the campus become what it is today and will continue to help the campus improve its ranking on these lists.
