Published: Tuesday August 27, 2019
Elmira College ranks #17 on the list of the Top 200 Bachelor's Colleges according to the Washington Monthly's annual college rankings. The rankings focus on what colleges are doing for their students, but also for their contribution to the public good. To measure this impact, colleges are rated on 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 society).
"We are honored to be included in the Washington Monthly's Top 200 Bachelor's Colleges," said Dr. Charles Lindsay, president of Elmira College. "This recognition provides tangible evidence that Elmira College is fulfilling its mission of enabling students to become active learners, effective leaders, responsible community members, and globally engaged citizens. We are proud of our rich history and commitment to the ideals of community service, and intellectual and individual growth."
