NMSU ranks in top tier of U.S. News & World Report National Universities for second year

New Mexico State University has been ranked in the top tier of the U.S. News & World Report National Universities rankings for a second consecutive year.


NMSU ranks 190 this year, a demonstration that NMSU faculty and staff are dedicated to providing a meaningful, high quality, affordable education for NMSU students, and in preparing the next generation of leaders for the state and nation.

"At New Mexico State University, we transform lives through discovery," said NMSU President Garrey Carruthers. "This recognition by U.S. News & World Report is further evidence that our efforts in education, research and outreach help enrich our state and provide a foundation for our students to discover who they are and prepare them for what they want to do with their lives."

NMSU has been competitively ranked in other prestigious rankings this summer, including ranking 73 in the Washington Monthly National Universities rankings, and 376 in the Forbes America's Top Colleges rankings. NMSU also is a Top 100 Degree Producer of both Hispanic and American Indian bachelor's and master's degrees, according to Diverse Issues in Higher Education.

As New Mexico's land-grant institution, NMSU's continued presence in the top tier of the U.S. News & World Report National Universities rankings confirms the university's place among the top institutions in our nation. This ranking will provide NMSU greater visibility for the work the university does, which will foster growth, recruitment, grants and collaborations with other institutions.
