We just took “redefining humanly possible” to a whole new level. On September 10th, U.S. News & World Report released their 2019 Best Colleges Rankings, and Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University) was named #15 in Best Regional Universities (North), up from a #64 spot last year. It doesn’t stop there. We were also recognized as #5 most innovative and #30 best value colleges. Innovation and return on investment are the heartbeat of our institution, and these rankings solidify what we had already known was true: Jefferson is the future of higher education.
Our president, Stephen K. Klasko, MD, MBA, explains: “When we made the decision to Thomas Jefferson University and Philadelphia University, we set out to be transformational in our approach to teaching and learning…. Today’s news is further validation that we made the right choice, at the right time, to merge our strengths and advance a new model of higher education infused with creativity across disciplines for the benefit of our students, families, alumni, faculty and staff.”
The energy on Jefferson’s campuses is palpable, whether it is in the simulation labs for our health science majors, late nights in the studio for our design students, or simply on the grassy quad during a Campus Involvement Fair. At Jefferson, each day brings a new challenge and a new opportunity for our students to combine their unique skills in order to present a solution. The University’s proven approach to collaborative, hands-on, professional education prepares our graduates to be innovative and effective in the workplace, and have jobs waiting for them when they graduate.
