CBS Moneywatch.com Ranks College Of Ozarks As One of “Top 25 College With The Best Professors”

By: Chelsea Kliethermes and Matt Farmer

This week, CBS MoneyWatch.com released the top “25 Colleges with the Best Professors in 2011” based off of Forbes magazine’s 2011 college rankings. College of the Ozarks ranked #15 out of 650 superior schools for outstanding professors.

According to the CBS MoneyWatch.com article written by Lynn O’Shaughnessy, “None of the Ivy League schools, for instance, crack the list of the top 25 schools with the best professors. Princeton came the closest at 57th best.”

Forbes determines the rankings through information provided by the Center for College Affordability and Productivity, which uses RateMyProfessors.com to assess the quality of teaching at schools. The website asks students to evaluate their professors in three categories: easiness, helpfulness and clarity. Forbes also uses schools’ freshmen retention rate, graduation rate, student debt levels, graduates’ salaries and more.

“College of the Ozarks has always focused on effective teaching, but it’s great to be recognized for what we do,” says Professor of Education Dana McMahon.

Eager parents of seniors and aspiring college scholars dash to the local bookstores and scan online to see which schools top the list, and Forbes is acclaimed for its “top” lists.
