Lebanon Valley Ranked 8th Among Baccalaureate Colleges by Washington Monthly
09.18.13 |
In a recently released ranking based on social mobility, research, and service, Lebanon Valley College was ranked #8 out of 350 baccalaureate institutions of higher education, according to Washington Monthly's 2013 rankings.

Receiving an overall score of 66, LVC also ranked 3rd for the number of bachelor's degree students that eventually obtain a doctorate. The College scored high in graduation rate, Pell grant distribution, research expenditures, Peace Corps rank, community service participation, and course and financial aid support.

The College was also named to Washington Monthly’s list of “America’s Best-Bang-for-the-Buck Colleges.” Only 350 of the 1,572 colleges and universities evaluated were named to the list.

Washington Monthly says its goal is to determine “what colleges are doing for the country,” and if consumers are getting the most for their money. The social mobility category considers a college's ability to recruit and retain low-income students; research considers the ability to produce cutting-edge scholarship and Ph.D.s; and service considers the ability to encourage students to give something back to their country.
