FAU Ranks No. 1


FAU Ranks No. 1

What an exciting week for Florida Atlantic University! The Board of Governors released the scores and rankings for the 11 universities that participate in the state’s performance-based funding metrics. Incredibly, FAU is No. 1 on the list with 84 points out of possible 100, tied with the University of Central Florida.

This remarkable achievement cannot be understated. The first-ever rankings were released in 2014 — and FAU placed second to last. However, through the efforts of our many dedicated faculty and staff, FAU climbed to the middle last year, tying for sixth place. And, this year, we are top of the pile! Although we still have work to do in some areas, we improved significantly in almost every category. To learn more about how we fared in the rankings, visit the FAU News Desk or view the rankings table.

I want to thank our faculty and staff from the bottom of my heart for all they do in their passionate pursuit of excellence for this great university. We will continue to work with Unbridled Ambition™ toward our goal of making FAU America’s Fastest Improving University.

Go Owls!
