Low Magazine Rankings Don’t Faze UW Officials

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The University of Wyoming received low scores in a new set of national rankings by US News and World Report.

UW was ranked 161st out of 201 universities listed. UW also was listed as 88th of 117 for top public universities.

But UW President Bob Sternberg says the university has a different mission than many of those that scored well on the rankings.

Sternberg says UW is a land grant university that wants to accept a lot of students.

He says the US News and World Report ranking favor schools that reject many students.

UW has about a 95 percent acceptance rate.

In addition, Sternberg tells the Associated Press that UW’s goal is to make positive ethical leaders, which isn’t something that is measured in the report.
