Washington MonthlyCOLUMBUS, Miss. – For the second year in a row, The W has been ranked a top master’s universities by Washington Monthly’s College Rankings.

 

The W is at No. 45 after appearing in Washington Monthly’s rankings for the first time in 2010.

Different from other ranking publications, Washington Monthly asks, “What are colleges doing for the country?”

"This recognition affirms the quality of students' educational experiences at MUW, and our faculty understand the role of education and how it benefits the community. Our students are demonstrating their focus on service by using their educational opportunities to better our world." said Dr. Jim Borsig, W president.

The ranking formula is based on schools’ contribution to the public good in three broad categories: social mobility (recruiting and graduating low-income students), research (producing cutting-edge scholarship and PhDs), and service (encouraging students to give something back to their country).

According to Washington Monthly editors, “Our rankings aim to identify institutions that are acting on behalf of the true public interest.”

The W has earned consistent recognition on the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for its commitment to service beyond the campus.  For the third year in a row, MUW has been recognized on the President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. Students, faculty and staff completed 256,000 hours of community service in 2011-2012.
