Thursday, 15 September 2011
Trinity Christian College has once again been ranked among the top Regional Colleges—Midwest by U.S.News & World Report in “America’s Best Colleges” for 2012.

The U.S. News rankings are based on several criteria, including peer assessment, graduation and retention rates, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial resources, and alumni giving.
Provost Liz Rudenga, Ph.D., on the College’s continued top-tier ranking:
“Signs of Trinity’s quality abound…a parent of a freshman stops to tell me that her daughter feels welcomed and enjoys her classes; a graduate writes to tell of his job, with a ‘thank you’ to professors who played a significant role in his Trinity experience; and as I sit in on one of the classes, I hear three students present a case study that illustrates their research and learning.”
Campus Ethnic Diversity: Regional Colleges—Midwest ranking
Trinity also ranked 13 in the area of Campus Ethnic Diversity: Regional Colleges—Midwest. This ranking speaks to the College’s continued commitment to develop a multi-racial, multi-national, and multi-denominational student body. To determine this ranking, U.S. News factors in the total proportion of minority students (leaving out international students) and the overall mix of groups.
