Washington Monthly ranks Tabor in top 100

For the second year in a row, Tabor College has been ranked 97th by Washington Monthly magazine in its Baccalaureate College Rankings. It is the third year in a row that Tabor has been ranked in the top 100.

?Being ranked by Wash?ington Monthly is an honor,? said Jules Glanzer, president of Tabor College. ?It is the one ranking that demonstrates that we are fulfilling our mission.

?For a national magazine to recognize that we are contributing to the public good of society is telling the world that we are accomplishing our mission of preparing people for a life of learning, work and service for Christ and his kingdom.?

Washington Monthly is a bi-monthly magazine that showcases government, education, politics and social service.

It ranks schools based on their contribution to the public good in three broad categories: social mobility (recruiting and graduating low-income students), research (producing cutting-edge scholarship and doctorates) and service (encouraging students to give something back to their country).

Tabor is committed to helping students achieve success in the classroom, in athletics, the arts and in service projects, according to a college spokesperson.

Tabor has several on-campus programs that help students become more involved with each other and surrounding communities.
