Washington MonthlyUD has been recognized by Washington Monthly as 15th among the 673 master's institutions ranked by the publication. The Washington, D.C.,-based political magazine ranks universities based on their contributions to the public good.

Among master's institutions, UD is ranked second among Catholic schools and third in Texas. It is the highest ranked school in Dallas/Fort Worth.

"We're pleased to be recognized by a ranking that ties 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, senior vice president for enrollment and student services.

Washington Monthly ranks 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 back to their country).
