Towson University is one of the nation’s best and most efficiently run universities, says U.S. News & World Report. For its region (north), TU ranked 10th among the top public schools and 44th among the best universities.
Towson was also ranked in the top five of the region (north) for its successful management of financial resources, despite reduced state budgets, to produce a quality education and experience for students.
The inaugural list was created by U.S. News & World Report to demonstrate “which schools are able to produce the highest educational quality, as determined by their place in our Best Colleges rankings, but spend relatively less money to achieve that quality.”
To create these rankings, the magazine measured how much each school spent per student on instruction, research, student services and other related educational expenditures during the fiscal year of 2011. For Towson, that number was $12,018.
“Towson University’s institutional focus on student needs and success is at the forefront of all decision-making, and I am pleased that our student focus is once again producing national recognition for Towson’s efficient stewardship of resources,” says President Maravene Loeschke.
