Loyola University Maryland was ranked No. 31 nationally in Washington Monthly’s 2022 Master’s University Rankings, which rates schools based on “what they do for the country,” measuring “their contribution to the public good in three broad categories: social mobility, research, and providing opportunities for public service,” according to the publication.

In addition, Loyola was included in Washington Monthly’s 2022 Best Bang for the Buck Rankings: Northeast, which rates schools “according to how well they help non-wealthy students attain marketable degrees at affordable prices.”

“Loyola regularly receives top ratings, but we’re especially gratified to be ranked highly on a list that looks at the good we bring to our city and country,” said Terrence M. Sawyer, J.D., president of Loyola. “As a Jesuit, Catholic university, we’re committed to going beyond providing a high-quality education to developing the whole person and serving the community around us.”

Washington Monthly’s Master’s University Rankings equally weigh social mobility, research, and public service, accounting for graduation rates, student diversity, Pell Grant awards, cost to attend, income after graduation, AmeriCorps and Peace Corps data, and spending on research and community service, among other measures.
