Hiram ranks among the best

U.S. News & World Report

U.S. News & World Report recently unveiled its 2023 college and university rankings, and Hiram College is again among the best regional colleges in multiple categories. The College was ranked thirteenth among Midwest Regional Colleges and was one of only sixteen institutions in Ohio to rank in this category. This ranking is also an increase from the College’s spot at number fifteen in the 2022 rankings.

Additionally, Hiram ranked third for Best Value among regional colleges in the Midwest, as a Top Performer on Social Mobility, landing tenth among regional colleges in the Midwest, and for Best Undergraduate Teaching list, ranking sixth among regional colleges in the Midwest.

Colleges of Distinction

Hiram College has also been recognized for excellence in higher education and commitment to helping undergraduate students learn, grow, and succeed, earning a place as one of the nation’s 2022-2023 Colleges of Distinction and Ohio Colleges of Distinction.

Hiram also achieved program-specific recognition for its Nursing Department, Education Department, and Scarborough School of Business and Communication. These additional accolades were borne out of a need for college curricula that are comprehensive not only in course material, but also in practical- and soft-skills development. Hiram College has met these needs with a blend of classroom learning, program-specific training, and abundant opportunities for real-world application.

Phi Theta Kappa Recognition

Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society (PTK) again named Hiram College to its 2022 Transfer Honor Roll in recognition of the dynamic pathways created to support transfer students.

The Transfer Honor Roll recognizes four-year colleges and universities that have developed transfer pathways that lead to excellence and success among community college transfer students. Institutions that made the list were selected based on their Transfer Friendliness Rating, determined by the Transfer Profile in PTK Connect, an online tool that helps students find their best-fit colleges, career pathways, and more. The Honor Roll is chosen from among the top 25 percent highest-rated colleges each year.

Hiram is one of 171 U.S. colleges and universities to be named to the list.
