The University of Tennessee at Martin is again listed among America’s 100 Best College Buys, a listing compiled by Institutional Research & Evaluation Inc.
Lewis Lindsey Jr., IRE president, made the announcement.
“For the fourth consecutive year, the University of Tennessee at Martin has distinguished itself as an institution providing a challenging academic environment, while doing so at a cost nearly 30 percent below the national average,” Lindsey said.
Dr. Tom Rakes, UT Martin chancellor, said that this latest listing recognizes the university’s efforts to provide students and families excellent value for their higher-education investment.
“Being included in this listing for four consecutive years is an outstanding achievement,” he said. “These are challenging economic times, and our faculty and staff work hard to deliver a high-quality educational experience for our students.”
The listing in America’s 100 Best College Buys is UT Martin’s third major recognition for the current academic year. Earlier, UT Martin continued its top-tier ranking for southern master’s institutions in the 2010 edition of America’s Best Colleges, compiled by U.S. News & World Report.
In addition, The Princeton Review named UT Martin “A Best Southeastern College” for 2010.
