UD Ranked 22nd Among Masters Institutions in Washington Monthlys 2014 College Guide

UD among Nations Affordable Elite Colleges

 

The University of Dallas has been recognized by Washington Monthly as 22nd among the 671 master's institutions ranked by the publication. The Washington, D.C.,-based political magazine ranks universities based on their contributions to the public good.

UD is ranked third among Catholic schools and fourth in Texas.

"We're pleased to be recognized by a ranking that ties in so closely with our mission of educating students in the intellectual and moral virtues so that they may lead their communities and countries," said John Plotts, vice president of enrollment and student services.

Additionally, UD is #184 among "Affordable Elite Colleges" and #159 on the "Best Bang for Your Buck" list, which ranks schools "that give high-achieving non-rich students a break in price rather than breaking their bank accounts," according to the website.

Washington Monthly rates schools based on their contribution to the public good in three broad categories: social mobility (recruiting and graduating low-income students), research (producing cutting-edge scholarship and doctorates), and service (encouraging students to give something back to their country).

UD is classified as a master's institution according to the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. This is a technical classification based on the number of degrees UD awards. More information about UD's rankings in major college guides is available here.

The Distinctive Look of UD
