Evans School Remains Among Best in the Nation

U.S. News & World Report’s 2024 Best Graduate Schools places the Evans School of Public Policy & Governance among the best schools in the nation and the world.  We are proud that our perennially ranked, top-ten graduate program continues to demonstrate the relevance of our curriculum, the influence of our alumni and the impactful research of our faculty. Having held a top-ten ranking concurrently for more than 10 years is a powerful reminder that the impact we make is real. 

Three of our specializations were also ranked in the top ten: Environmental Policy (2), Nonprofit Management (5), and Public Finance & Budgeting (9).   

Evans School Dean Jodi Sandfort noted: “Our strong national reputation is an important resource we draw upon in setting the direction of public policy education in our country at this time.  Our focus upon democratizing public policy and inspiring public service is being recognized as the next generation of strategies for public policy education. Our students benefit from our engagement with important questions and support for innovating new approaches to policy and management. Through these strategies, we are working to address the inequities built into our institutions and spark a shared belief in the sacred work of public service.”  

These rankings are released annually and are based on reputation and respect among peer institutions.
