Here’s how Baltimore’s universities measured up in the 2022 US News & World Report rankings

Take a look at the rankings for 11 local universities in this year's list.

Earlier this week, U.S. News & World Report released its 2022 Best Colleges rankings of undergraduate programs.

The report looks at a school’s outcomes as racked through six main categories: student outcomes, faculty resources, expert opinion, financial resources, student excellence and alumni giving. Experts in academia also weigh in, which factors about 20% into the overall score.

(As noted by Technical.ly’s Pittsburgh reporter Sophie Burkholder: Though the reliability and merit of these rankings has long been called into question by some education experts in the past, they still drive interest in universities for prospective students, and can call attention to the successes of individual programs or majors within each school.)

John Hopkins University was top of the pack locally, making the top ten of national universities. University of Maryland, Baltimore County was in the top ten for the best undergraduate teaching and Loyola University Maryland was ranked the best college in the nation for veterans.

Hopkins’ high performance probably isn’t a surprise to anyone in Baltimore, but it is worth noting that other universities in Baltimore have strengths in areas that exceed not just Hopkins but most in the nation.

This is how Baltimore’s universities fared.
