Category 3: Results ofDesignIntelligence deans surveys from 2007, 2008, and 2009, which solicits opinions about respected programs as well as outstanding educators and education leaders.
Category 4: Greenway Group independent analysis and opinion of overall campus environment for learning, technology resources, opportunities for integrated learning, and joint degree programs. Also incorporates student evaluations.
