The University of North Carolina Wilmington has been recognized by the U.S. News & World Report for the second year in a row.

The multi-platform publisher ranked UNCW fourth of five universities in the “Regional Universities (South)” category. For the study, the U.S. News sought out schools displaying high academic quality while spending less money to accomplish that excellence.

In addition, UNCW ranked sixth of 25 universities on the “Top Public Schools (Regional Universities South)” list according to the U.S. News & World Report rankings site. Several other websites recognized UNCW in the past quarter including Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, The Daily Beast and Military Advanced Education.

“UNCW is continuously recognized by premier publications for its remarkable educational experience, quality academic programs and student support,” said Chancellor William Sederburg in a news release. “These honors further validate the dedication our faculty and staff have to providing UNCW’s students with opportunities that enhance their success on campus and beyond the classroom.”
