Abstract

"Adventist colleges and universities feel great pressure to attract more students in the ever-increasingly competitive environment of higher education. As they seek to distinguish themselves through accreditations, awards, and success of faculty, a new tool for showing a competitive edge has emerged: rankings. Various news outlets and Websites rank United States (U.S.) and international universities.

"This article reviews these rankings and some of the implications for Adventist colleges and universities. Therefore, two basic questions guide this analysis: First, do rankings really measure quality? And second, should Adventist institutions use these rankings to maintain and increase enrollment? Responding to these questions may have strategic implications for strengthening Adventist higher education."
