Daemen Earns National Ranking by Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education

Daemen Earns National Ranking by Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education

AMHERST, N.Y. – For the second consecutive year, Daemen College has been ranked nationally in the prestigious Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education College Rankings, which focus on student success and learning. The second annual list includes 1,054 institutions from across the U.S.

Rankings are based on four key performance areas, including resources (30 percent), engagement (30 percent), outcomes (40 percent), and environment (10 percent).

Based on these four main pillars, Daemen was strongest in the area of engagement, making it the second time the college has ranked high for effectively engaging with students. Specific measures used to assess this are interaction with teachers and students, students feeling engaged with the college, whether students would recommend the institution to a friend, and the number of accredited programs.

Dave Bauer made a career out of teaching environmental science to teenagers, and now that he’s retired, he wants to cut back a little bit. No, not on teaching students about his love for the environment and the great outdoors. That will never change.

What he would like to do is cut back on the age of the students a wee bit, and bring his message to the kindergarten through grade three population … and their parents, teachers, librarians, principals and school administrators.
