This is the ninth year that Miami has been in the top five for undergraduate teaching, according to the university. Miami has appeared every year since 2010, the year the rankings were established.

“The deep commitment of Miami’s faculty to helping students succeed academically, personally and professionally sets a standard that we are proud to maintain,” president Greg Crawford said in a prepared statement. “It is a bonus to continue to be recognized by peer universities as one of the top public universities in the nation for undergraduate teaching.”

In the overall category of “Best National Universities,” Miami University tied for the 96th spot with five other schools. The other five schools included the Illinois Institute of Technology, the University of Colorado-Boulder, the University of Denver, the University of San Francisco and the University of Vermont, according to U.S. News.

Miami was highly ranked among the nation’s universities for several reasons, said Robert Morse, chief data strategist at U.S. News.

“Miami University’s best areas were alumni giving, grad rate performance, high school counselor reputation, and student excellence,” Morse said via email.
