NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- Washington Monthly magazine ranked The College of New Rochelle highly in several areas of its 2015 Master’s Universities Category.
The magazine ranked CNR in the top 50 in the areas of service staff, courses, financial aid support and community service participation; in the top 100 overall out of 673 colleges nationwide in the category; and in the top 10 in New York.
Washington Monthly rates schools based on their contribution in three broad categories: service (encouraging students to give something back to their country), research (producing cutting-edge scholarship and Ph.D.s) and social mobility (recruiting and graduating low-income students).
“The college is proud to once again be recognized as a top institution by Washington Monthly magazine for our efforts in both classroom learning and community service, which reflect our core values," said CNR President Judith Huntington. "These rankings reflect how we are optimizing the learning environment inside and outside of the classroom through enhancements to our technology infrastructure and communications, academic facilities and new support programs.”
Ranked 25th for providing service to its students, the college’s strategic focus on this area is bringing advantages to its students. The recent receipt of two significant federal grants totaling $14 million from the U.S. Department of Education — the largest in the college’s history — has enhanced the college’s ability to deliver educational opportunities and achieve superior student outcomes at all of its campuses.
Overall, CNR ranks 86 out of 673 colleges nationwide in the Washington Master’s University Category. The College of New Rochelle is ranked by U.S. News and World Report in the Top Tier among Regional Universities in the North. CNR has been recognized as a “Catholic College of Distinction” and has been named for five consecutive years to the President’s Community Service Honor Roll, the highest federal recognition a college or university can receive for its commitment to volunteering, service-learning, and civic engagement.
