Washington Monthly's Annual College Guide is Out

This from Washington Monthly:
Welcome to the Washington Monthly College Guide and Rankings. Unlike U.S. News and World Report and similar guides, this one asks not what colleges can do for you, but what colleges are doing for the country. Are they educating low-income students, or just catering to the affluent? Are they improving the quality of their teaching, or ducking accountability for it? Are they trying to become more productive—and if so, why is average tuition rising faster than health care costs? Every year we lavish billions of tax dollars and other public benefits on institutions of higher learning. This guide asks: Are we getting the most for our money?

Yeah we are #336 out of 684! Thank Goodness for Thomas Moore or EKU would be last in the state among Master level universities. Once we get that old EKU colonel rebranded with a hipper, sleaker, youthful appearance - look out baby!
