Creighton Ranks Second in National Listing of Schools Contributing to Public Good

Creighton University ranks second nationally in Washington Monthly’s 2010 master’s universities rankings. The monthly nonprofit magazine of United States politics and government ranks schools based on their contribution to the public good.

Rankings are based on three broad criteria:

  • Research—fostering scientific and humanistic research;

  • Service—encouraging students to give back service to their country; and

  • Social mobility—recruiting and graduating low-income students as well as others.

“Over the years, the University has amassed a number of rankings that are based on being good. It is just as meaningful to be recognized for also doing good, as it speaks to the very heart of our Jesuit, Catholic identity. Through service and their research, our students and faculty strive to be a force for good in the world,” said the Rev. John P. Schlegel, S.J., Creighton president.
