Penn State Third in National Rankings


Once again this year, Penn State University (of which Penn College is a special mission affiliate) has been recognized for the job it does in preparing students to benefit the nation. Up three spots from last year, Penn State now is ranked No. 3 in the nation behind only Massachusetts Institute of Technology (first) and University of California, Berkeley (second) by Washington Monthly, a political, inside-the-beltway publication. The rankings reflect excellence across the full breadth of their measures, rather than rewarding an institution for an exceptionally high focus on just one area. “In short,” the editors wrote, “(Penn State), measured on our terms by the yardstick of fostering research, national service and social mobility does a lot more for the country than Princeton.” The full story is available here.
