Our History

U.S. News Global Education was founded in September 2016 by U.S. News & World Report and Shorelight Education.

U.S. News Global Education combines U.S. News’ authoritative rankings, analysis and editorial content with Shorelight’s expertise in supporting international students who want to study at U.S. colleges and universities. This combination uniquely positions U.S. News Global Education to help international students, education counselors and higher education institutions achieve their goals.

Today, U.S. News Global Education is just getting started, and we anticipate many exciting announcements in the weeks and months to come.


Our Mission

Our mission is very simple: enable life-changing experiences for international students and open U.S. and global universities to the world.

Delivering on that mission is where U.S. News Global Education will set itself apart from the pack. Ultimately it is our vision to reinvent the research and selection process for higher education by enabling international students, parents, education counselors, university partners and employers to seamlessly find the best-fit experience for long-term achievement.

We will deliver because we are customer focused. We are true partners. We embrace challenges. We deliver innovative solutions. We are authentic. We want what is best for each student. And we know that when you do what is best for the student, everything else will follow.
