Washington Monthly Ranks Covenant among Top Ten Baccalaureate Colleges in the Nation

Washington Monthly has again ranked Covenant among the top baccalaureate colleges in the nation, ranking the College #10, up from #13 in last year’s ranking. The rankings highlight how many students receive financial assistance in the form of Pell grants, graduation rates, alumni PhDs, community service efforts of students, faculty, and staff, and other ways the College contributes to public welfare.


Washington Monthly explains that they rate schools “based on their contribution to the public good in three broad categories: social mobility, research, and service.” The overall score of a college will reflect their scores in each of the three categories. Through these rankings, Washington Monthly hopes to help change the way we value higher education institutions by focusing on accomplishments that often go unnoticed in traditional ranking systems.


Covenant ranked first in the number of graduates who go on to serve in the Peace Corps and fifth in the number of alumni who go on to receive PhDs, relative to school size.
