College Consensus Releases Global Consensus Ranking of Top 100 Public Colleges and Universities for 2021


Public colleges and universities are a vital part of higher education in America. Public schools generally offer a more affordable and accessible option for students than private colleges, helping to democratize higher education and build more broadly educated citizenship.
