From the Register Mail

Knox College has been ranked 37th by Washington Monthly for the contribution the college makes to “the public good.”

Knox’s ranking is among more than 250 national liberal arts colleges, and the highest among nine liberal arts colleges recognized in Illinois.

Unlike many college guides, the Washington Monthly College Rankings examine “not just what colleges can do for you, but what colleges are doing for the country,” according to the editors.

Criteria for evaluating colleges include support for community service, research and commitments to access and affordability.
