The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education College Ranking ranks the University of Denver as a top 100 school that focuses on student success and learning. DU claimed the 96 spot, beating out Colorado College, CU Boulder, Colorado State University and Colorado School of Mines, making it the top University in Colorado on the list.

The rankings are based on 200,000 current student responses to several topics including student resources, engagement, outcomes, and environment. 

"Student success is a major priority for this campus community," said Chancellor Rebecca Chopp. "Engaging with students and providing them with necessary resources and unique opportunities to collaborate with peers, faculty and the community is just one way the University of Denver is focusing on the student experience from access to achievement."
