It earned the Carnegie Classification for Community Engagement in 2006 and 2015; was recognized by Princeton Review as one of 81 “Colleges with a Conscience”; is one of the top ten institutions whose graduates join the Peace Corps and was ranked 25th in the nation for its contribution to the public good by the Washington Monthly (2014).
