“We’re pleased with this recognition, particularly since the recent growth of the college’s graduate programs has moved Southwestern into a new ranking category (regional universities) in which we aren’t as well known by the peer institutions that participate in creating the rankings,” says Southwestern College President Dick Merriman.

Southwestern is the highest-ranked KCAC school in the category of Regional University/Midwest.
