Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) has once again been named the most innovative university in the North and one of the nation's "Best Regional Universities" by U.S. News & World Report.
The annual "Best Colleges" peer assessment survey asks college presidents, provosts and admission deans to nominate schools in each category, based on specific criteria.
The "Most Innovative Schools" category was introduced in 2015, and is intended to highlight colleges or universities that are making cutting-edge changes. Participating college officials are asked to nominate schools that are making the "most innovative improvements in terms of curriculum, faculty, students, campus life, technology or facilities." For the second consecutive year, SNHU is ranked number one in the North.
"This recognition from U.S. News and World Report reflects our commitment to reinvent higher education," said Paul LeBlanc, president, Southern New Hampshire University. "We push the limits of the status quo every day through innovation, creativity and risk-taking, to find new delivery models and ultimately, better serve our students."
The 2017 "Best Regional Universities" category highlights 653 of the best universities from the four U.S. regions - North, South, Midwest and West - that attract students most heavily from surrounding areas. SNHU is ranked 101 in the North in this category.

When Jason Gagnon graduated with an accounting degree to join a Manchester, N.H. accounting firm, he became part of a still-active tradition at the firm: tapping SNHU's senior's for accounting talent.
Summer is here and that - hopefully - means a few more free hours to use catching up on some reading. We asked people across SNHU what they're reading this summer and what they recommend.
Refugees are not the hopeless faces often featured on the news. They are hardworking, talented people who are smart, able, and can pursue higher education if given the opportunity.
