IUP Selected for “Washington Monthly” National Ranking of Schools Based on Contributions to Society

IUP is one of only nine universities in Pennsylvania and 280 universities throughout the nation to be selected for the rankings.

When compiling the list, Washington Monthly editors used three criteria: social mobility, or how committed the college is to enrolling low-income students and helping them earn degrees; research production and success at sending undergraduates on to doctoral programs; and service.

This recognition follows five years of IUP’s selection for the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for exemplary service efforts to America’s communities.

IUP also recently celebrated its 14th consecutive year of inclusion in the Princeton Review’s Best Colleges guidebook.
