Mercy College today announced that it has been ranked in The Wall Street Journal / Times Higher Education (WSJ/THE) College Rankings 2020. This is the first time Mercy College has been recognized in the Northeast Region category and reaffirms Mercy as a leader in providing a quality education that ensures successful outcomes.

Now in its third year, the WSJ/ THE College Rankings, combines two industry leaders that evaluate more than 800 colleges and universities across the country to determine their education impact and lifetime benefit to students. The ranking is based on student satisfaction and peer reviews and included more than 100,000 responses based on four key pillars: Resources, Engagement, Outcomes and Environment.

“Mercy College is committed to providing students with a positive, engaging and diverse experience,“ said Tim Hall, Mercy College President. “This ranking is further proof that the College is offering programs and support services that provide students with a strong foundation for academic and professional success.”

This ranking continues the positive momentum underway at Mercy College. Following the March 2019 agreement between Mercy College and the College of New Rochelle (CNR), Mercy has registered more than 1,700 CNR students for classes, has received approval to teach several CNR academic programs adding to its 90+ existing academic offerings, has made offers to hire more than 70 faculty and staff and has negotiated leases to use three CNR Campuses. In addition, Mercy is greatly expanding its Manhattan Campus, known as MercyManhattan, to more than 95,000 square feet over the next two years.

The College’s focus on putting students first has resulted in outstanding recognition from numerous prestigious sources, as well as notable developments in its programs. The College has been recognized by the White House in 2015 as a “Bright Spot in Hispanic Education,” and has been named Westchester Magazine’s 2019 Best College.
