CSU ranks 67th on magazine's ranking
The university ranked No. 63 last year.
The latest ranking, CSU President Tony Frank said, is an indication of "the world-class quality of a CSU education and of our continued commitment to make that education available to all students with strong potential to contribute and succeed here."
U.S. News noted in its summary that CSU is "considered one of the leading research universities, and faculty and students work together to explore fields such as atmospheric science, infectious disease, clean energy technologies and environmental science."
"Rankings such as these are a good, third-party barometer of how we are doing in the eyes of others," Frank said. "Our job is to make Colorado State University the best public research university out there."
U.S. News and World Report examines more than 1,500 of the country's four-year colleges and universities for the rankings, including 281 considered for the top national rankings.
The No. 1 university on this year's ranking was the University of California at Berkeley.
