Vanguard University has been recognized in the Online College Database’s new ranking, “Top Colleges in California Shaping the Next Generation,” which honors the post-secondary institutions in the state that graduated the most education and teaching professionals in 2012.
According to The College Database, the organization that publishes the ranking, programs offered in California were evaluated and ranked according to reputation, facilities, and academic opportunities.
The College Database used the following methodology to identify the top colleges shaping the next generation:
-Must be fully accredited
- 4-year colleges only
- Public or private, not-for-profit colleges only
- No for-profit schools
- U.S. colleges only
In addition to meeting the criteria above, schools must have an education department and graduate at least 10 students per year at both the undergraduate and graduate level.
Doug Jones, founder of The Colleges Database, said the schools that made the list each “help the educational ecosystem by fueling good teachers.”
