Goldey-Beacom College Ranked by U.S. News & World Report

Wilmington, DE – On behalf of the Board of Trustees of Goldey-Beacom College (GBC), President Colleen Perry Keith is proud to announce the College’s first-time ranking by U.S. News & World Report.

After being listed as a “specialty school” for decades by the Carnegie Classification®, this designation precluded GBC from being listed by U.S. News & World Report.

“I am thrilled that Goldey-Beacom College has attained reclassification by the Carnegie Classification® and is now listed as ‘Master’s Colleges & Universities: Larger Programs’,” said Dr. Keith. She continued, “This change qualifies the College to appear in the U.S. News & World Report’s ranking system. Goldey-Beacom is now counted among the Regional Universities North category.”

Dr. Keith said, “As we continue our focus on enrollment, career opportunities and an expanded list of degree options for our diverse population, thousands of students and parents will find Goldey-Beacom in online searches as they explore the possibilities of higher education.”

The College’s official ranking reads:

  • #133-175 out of 181 in Regional Universities North
  • #55 in Top Performers on Social Mobility (tie)

Schools are ranked according to their performance across a set of widely accepted indicators of excellence. Please visit:  How U.S. News Calculated the Best Colleges Rankings ( to read the Sept. 11, 2022 article by Robert Morse and Eric Brooks to learn more about their annual rankings.
