Taylor University has been ranked 17th nationally in the newest poll by Washington Monthly magazine.

The Washington Monthly rankings are based on a methodology that measures 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 service (encouraging students to give something back to their country).

“We are grateful for this honor from Washington Monthly and the recognition of whole-person learning at Taylor University,” said Steve Mortland, Vice President for Enrollment Management and Marketing at Taylor. “These rankings reflect in no small way Taylor University’s mission statement: to develop servant leaders marked with a passion to minister Christ's redemptive love and truth to a world in need. Our graduates serve God and humankind in venues of service ranging from the medical and teaching professions to social work, technology and communication – all with a desire to not just make a living, but to change the world.”

Founded in 1969, Washington Monthly is a bimonthly nonprofit magazine covering politics, government, culture and the media.
