U.S. News & World Report recently recognized two River Forest universities in its annual “Best Colleges” list. 

The magazine ranked Dominican University as third in the category “Best Value Schools” for academic quality compared to the net cost to students. 

“I am delighted and proud to see Dominican University excel across U.S. News & World Report rankings this year, indicating the critical importance of inclusive excellence in higher education today — excellence that is accessible, affordable, outcomes-oriented, and anchored by quality teaching,” President Donna Carroll said in a statement. 

Concordia University Chicago was likewise recognized as a best value school in the Midwest. 

“These recognitions point to our dedication to the overall college experience, graduating well-prepared, academically-fulfilled students from a multitude of different backgrounds pursuing bachelor’s through doctoral degrees,” Rev. Daniel Gard, president of Concordia, said in a statement.
