A guide to what college rankings don't tell you.

New York University

New York, NY

New York University says, "The College Core Curriculum represents the essence of the American tradition of liberal arts education 'the humanities, arts, social sciences, mathematics, and the natural sciences' areas of inquiry that are pursued for the sake of expanding human knowledge, rather than as training for a particular profession. Education in the liberal arts does not involve a fixed canon of knowledge; instead, it builds your critical, analytic, and communications skills, hones the imagination, and promotes creative thinking."

FIRE Speech Code School Rating
A yellow light institution maintains policies that could be interpreted to suppress protected speech or policies that, while clearly restricting freedom of speech, restrict relatively narrow categories of speech.

Warning: FIRE believes that free speech is not only a moral imperative, but also an essential element of a college education. However, private universities, as private associations, possess their own right to free association, which allows them to prioritize other values above the right to free speech if they wish to do so. Therefore, when a private university clearly and consistently states that it holds a certain set of values above a commitment to freedom of speech, FIRE warns prospective students and faculty members of this fact. Six schools surveyed for this report meet these criteria.
