Page 1 Best national universities U.S. News & World Report August 30, 1999 FOCUS - 16 of 20 DOCUMENTS Copyright 1999 U.S. News & World Report August 30, 1999 SECTION: NEWS YOU CAN USE; AMERICA'S BEST COLLEGES; BEST COLLEGES 2000; Pg. 88 LENGTH: 5098 words HEADLINE: Best national universities BODY: Best National Universities WHAT ARE NATIONAL UNIVERSITIES? There are 228 national universities in the country (147 public, 81 private), based on categories developed by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. The universities offer a full range of undergraduate majors, as well as master's and doctoral degrees; many strongly emphasize research. A list of the top 50 public institutions appears on Page 93. U.S. News ranks universities and colleges in three steps. First, schools are grouped with similar schools in one of 10 categories, based on the Carnegie classifications. (Specialty schools and colleges with enrollments below 250 are not ranked.) Second, data on up to 16 indicators of academic quality are gathered from each school and tabulated. Finally, colleges are ranked in their category by their total weighted score. For more information, you can visit www.usnews.com.
