“I’m proud of our team, and the latest ‘Best Colleges’ rankings reflect the pervasive efforts of our faculty, staff, students and industry partners,” President Michael J. Reed said. “Penn College’s performance demonstrates what we already know about our institution and its unique educational mission. Our hands-on STEM-based academic programs produce graduates with the skills to succeed from day one on the job and advance rapidly in a diverse array of career fields. We have over a 96% placement rate of graduates, and employers representing a wide range of high-demand occupations in engineering technologies; nursing and health sciences; and business, arts and sciences, tell us they will hire as many graduates as we can provide.”
