New cégep ranking looks to measure impact of institution

February 17, 2021
Journal de Montréal has released its revised and improved cégep rankings, which compares Quebec’s 52 public cégeps. The rankings evaluate the institutions according to factors such as the strength of incoming students and graduation rates in thirteen programs: Three pre-university programs and ten technical programs. According to the publication, the ranking aims to put cégeps that accept “initially weaker” students and have a high graduation rate at the top of the ranking, in order to demonstrate the impact that the institution has on the students. Journal reports that the Jonquière and Rimouski cégeps come first in several rankings. Journal de Montréal (Release) | Journal de Montréal (Rankings) (QC)
