Bulldogs all over are celebrating over the announcement that Butler tied for first place as the Most Innovative School among Midwestern Regional Universities.

The distinction comes from U.S. News and World Report’s best college rankings for 2016.

The rating, released today, is the result of voting by college presidents, provosts, and admissions deans, who were asked to nominate the colleges or universities that are making the most innovative improvements in curriculum, faculty, students, campus life, technology, or facilities.

“We added this ranking so that college officials could pick schools that the public should be watching because of the cutting-edge changes being made on their campuses,” the magazine reported.

Butler President James M. Danko, who has stressed the importance of innovation since taking over the University four years ago, said that entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to undergraduate, residential education pervade Butler University.

“We are fostering the kind of cross-disciplinary, creative thinking that enriches our campus and serves our students well throughout their lives,” Danko said. “I am pleased to see that other universities have taken note of our efforts.”

Butler also finished No. 7 in the Midwest for Best Undergraduate Teaching, and again finished in the Top 15 schools rated a Best Value in the Midwest. 

Butler also finished among the best schools in four other categories:

-No. 2 overall among Midwest Regional Universities, the sixth consecutive year Butler has received this designation.

-No. 2 in the Midwest under Best Colleges for Veterans

-One of the nation’s Best Undergraduate Business Programs

-Made the list of A+ Schools for B Students

“These rankings are a testament to our students’ success and to the tireless work of our faculty and staff to engage and support them,” Danko said. “Our academic excellence, innovative approach, and educational outcomes have laid a firm foundation for continued achievement and recognition.”
