Professors at the Air Force Academy are the most accessible in the nation, according to a new report by the Princeton Review.
The lofty assessment was published in the 2011 edition of The Best 373 Colleges.
"This is the Air Force Academy's fifth ‘#1 most accessible faculty ranking' in the past six years and validates our outstanding faculty's dedication and commitment to developing officers of character for our Air Force and our nation," said Brig. Gen. Dana Born, Dean of the Faculty. "This national ranking is great validation our cadets once again voted the Air Force Academy as #1 for most accessible professors. That's an indisputable fact and speaks volumes about our cadets' report on our faculty's commitment to their learning and development, year after year!"
The student-faculty ratio at the Academy is 9:1, the average class size is 20, 100 percent of the faculty is full-time and no classes are taught by teaching assistants. Extra Instruction laboratories are staffed throughout the academic day, with at least one professor available each class period to help cadets.
