Alverno College is a private liberal arts college with an internationally acclaimed ability-based program and diverse student body. Our low instructor-to-student ratio and collaborative faculty contribute to a positive learning environment. We provide students with real-life, hands-on experiences in the classroom, in study-abroad opportunities and in professional internships related to their major. These experiences, among others, have resulted in Alverno College being recognized as the “Most Innovative School” among Midwest Regional Universities in U.S. News & World Report’s 2016 America’s Best Colleges guidebook. For the sixth consecutive year, Alverno was also ranked first in the Midwest in the “Strong Commitment to Teaching” category.
