“Our rankings aim to identify institutions that are acting on behalf of the true public interest,” write the Washington Monthly editors in this year’s guide. “We rate 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 PhDs), and service (encouraging students to give something back to their country).”
HMC was rated highly for its integration of community service into the curriculum; support of student service organizations; outreach programs in local schools; vigorous, interdisciplinary curriculum; high-level undergraduate research program; and mission to educate socially responsible leaders in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
