U of M Fares Well in College Rankings by "Washington Monthly" Magazine

For release: August 30, 2012
For press information, contact Curt Guenther, 901-678-2843

The University of Memphis is 51st among 281 “national” colleges rated by Washington Monthly magazine based on social mobility, research and service.  The U of M ranked fifth in the area of service staff, courses and financial aid support.

According to the publication’s methodology, social mobility encompasses recruiting and graduating low-income students; research means producing cutting-edge scholarship and awarding Ph.D. degrees; and service is encouraging students to give something back to their country.

 Overall, the magazine ranked 1,569 public, private nonprofit and for-profit colleges and universities. 

Washington Monthly asserts that its criteria are more important in judging the worth of a college or university than that used by other well-known publications.  It views schools in light of what they are doing for the country and whether they are high quality, affordable and accessible.
