FAMU Is Rattling Its Way To The Top Of The List Of Best Public HBCUs

U.S. News & World Report, the world’s leading authority on education rankings, has unveiled their annual list of the best colleges. Categories include Top Public Schools, Top Performers on Social Mobility, and new this year, Best Undergraduate Nursing Programs. 

For the 2022 list of top HBCUs, a total of 78 HBCUs were ranked. To make the list, a school must be an undergraduate baccalaureate-granting institution that enrolls primarily first-year, first-time students must currently be listed as part of the White House and U.S. Department of Education’s Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and must have made it on U.S. News & World Report’s overall Best Colleges ranking. So, how did your HBCU fare?

For the third consecutive year, Florida A&M University tops the list of public HBCUs and moved up 13 spots from last year’s overall HBCU list to tie with North Carolina A&T University for seventh place. FAMU also landed the 104th spot as a top public university in the nation. Last year, they placed at 117th. 

“Moving up 13 places is a testament to our focus on student success and the dedication of our faculty, staff, and students to the tenets of our strategic plan, FAMU Rising,” said FAMU President Larry Robinson, Ph.D. in a release. “Our intentionality and teamwork allow us to focus acutely on opportunities and more effectively address challenges.”

The HBCU list is not the only place where FAMU is achieving, they also tied with the University of California — Santa Cruz for 13th place in the top performers on social mobility category.

Florida A&M University’s GPA also came up .06 points compared to last year’s 3.74.

Congrats to FAMU!
