Johns Hopkins University climbed to 10th in the latest U.S. News & World Report "Best Colleges Rankings," released in September. That's up from 12th last year and 16th as recently as 2006.

Over the past decade, the university has worked to enhance and strengthen the undergraduate experience. It has expanded research opportunities, built and renovated academic buildings, and introduced new co-curricular offerings to help develop every student not only as a scholar but also as a contributing member of society. Those initiatives are tied together by improved financial aid to ensure that a family's economic circumstances do not keep a deserving student from attending Johns Hopkins, says President Ronald J. Daniels.

"At Johns Hopkins, we are committed to nurturing the best young minds in an environment that prizes intellectual creativity, discovery, and service to our world," says Daniels.
