Marlboro gets top national rating for low student-faculty ratio

Marlboro Alumni have long known that when it comes to learning in a tight-knit classroom with fully engaged faculty, Marlboro College is second to none. This summer, Marlboro was ranked number one for the lowest student-faculty ratio, coming in at 5-to-1, by U.S. News & World Report.

“Marlboro’s small size is one of its greatest strengths,” said President Kevin Quigley. “It enables students and faculty to thoroughly know each other’s work and ideas, and to think independently in remarkably innovative ways as part of a distinctive learning community.”

Marlboro shared the list with 20 other colleges including such top-rated liberal arts schools as Williams, Amherst, Swarthmore, and Skidmore. The list was selected from 222 national liberal arts colleges that provided student-faculty ratios to U.S. News in an annual survey, with an average of 11 students per faculty member.
