Our faculty members challenge their students, share insights gained through professional experience and communicate the knowledge they've spent a lifetime acquiring. They don't rely on teaching assistants (Bluffton doesn't have any), and they're supportive in the classroom, active in the community and committed to teaching. With most classes smaller than 20 students, allowing for personal relationships to develop between Bluffton students and faculty, it's no surprise that U.S. News and World Report  ranks Bluffton University in the top tier of Best Baccalaureate Colleges in the Midwest.
