'Washington Monthly' Again Ranks SU Among Nation's 'Best Bang for the Buck Colleges'

By SU Public Relations

SALISBURY, MD---For the 11th consecutive year, Washington Monthly magazine has named Salisbury University one of its “Best Bang for the Buck Colleges.”

The best value list spotlights schools that “help non-wealthy students attain marketable degrees at affordable prices.” The overall rankings celebrate institutions’ “contributions to the public good.”

SU was ranked among the top 75 in the U.S. among all master’s-level universities, and in the top 150 for value among all universities in the Northeast.

To be included, colleges had to meet criteria related to social mobility (recruiting and graduating low-income students), research and providing opportunities for public service. Net price of attendance also was a factor.

“With a rich history of prioritizing student research and public service spanning several decades, and in light of our current celebration of the most diverse class in our history, including over 40% first-generation students, SU shares Washington Monthly's vision of what makes a university great,” said SU President Carolyn Ringer Lepre.

“We are honored to continue to be recognized among the publication’s top master’s institutions in the U.S., and being acknowledged as one of the region’s best values underscores our ongoing commitment to ensuring that a Salisbury education remains accessible to all.”

The rankings are available online.
