Washington Monthly Gives UD a Different Kind of College Ranking

The University of Dallas was ranked number 23 among the nation's top 100 master's universities in Washington Monthly magazine's 2012 annual college guide, an increase of 10 spots over last year's ranking. Washington Monthly in collaboration with the New American Foundation's Education Policy Program rated schools based on "what they are doing for their students and the country by improving social mobility, producing research and promoting public service."

Among other Catholic universities in the same category, the university ranks fourth nationally.

The social mobility category gives colleges credit for enrolling many low-income students and helping them earn degrees, research production focuses on the number of students who go on to earn doctoral degrees relative to the size of the institution and public service rankings are based on the number of students who participate in giving back to the community.

Master's universities include institutions that awarded at least 50 master's degrees and fewer than 20 doctoral degrees during the update year.
