2013 National Universities Rankings 2nd Page

Read National Universities Rankings in the chart below and use this drop-down menu to check out Rankings charts for other school types:

About the Rankings: We rate schools based on their contribution to the public good in three broad categories: Social Mobility (recruiting and graduating low-income students), Research (producing cutting-edge scholarship and PhDs), and Service (encouraging students to give something back to their country).

First time ever on the Web -- see our "Best Bang for the Buck" schools with this drop-down menu.
