September 2, 2013 — Valparaiso University says Washington Monthly magazine has named it, “the No. 4 top master’s university in the nation.”

VU says the publication annually ranks universities’ contributions to the public good based on criteria such as research, scholarship, recruiting and graduating low-income students, and commitment to service.  It says the rankings specifically, “focus on community service hours relative to school size and the number of alumni who go on to serve in the ROTC and the Peace Corps.”

The University says it is one of three colleges in Indiana included in the rankings, and the only school ranked in the top 30, “Valpo is continually recognized for its dedication to preparing students for a lifetime of leadership and service.  Students and alumni participate in service-learning experiences around the world, volunteer in their local communities and are charged lead through compassionate service and intellectual competence. . .  Valpo annually awards more than $70 million in financial assistance to all students.”
