Case Western Reserve University ranks in top 25 of The Washington Monthly's annual college issue

Publication rates schools based on service, research, social mobility


Case Western Reserve University ranks in the top 25 of The Washington Monthly College Rankings issue.

Out of 245 schools rated, Case is listed at number 25, the top Ohio school represented in the rankings. The publication rated both private and public institutions based on three main criteria: universities as engines of social mobility, producing academic minds and scientific research that advance knowledge and drive economic growth, and encouragement of a service ethic.

According to the editors, "When colleges are doing what they should, they benefit all of us. They undertake vital research that drives our economy. They help Americans who are poor to become Americans who will prosper. And they shape the thoughts and ethics of the young Americans who will soon be leading the country. It's worth knowing, then, which individual colleges and universities fit the bill."

The Washington Monthly college edition is featured in the publication's September 2006 edition. For more details go to
