Nazareth College is ranked number 27 on a list of the Top 100 Master's Universities by the 2013 Washington Monthly College Rankings. In addition, the College ranked first place in service staff, courses, and financial aid support and second under community service participation and hours served.
Washington Monthly's rankings rate 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 Ph.D.s), and service (encouraging students to give something back to their country).
The overall score represents the combined score of the three metrics—social mobility, research, and service—where the highest is scaled to 100 and the lowest is 0. Each metric is weighted equally.
For "service staff, courses and financial aid support," the school’s rank is determined by a combined measure of the number of staff supporting community service, relative to the total number of staff; the number of academic courses that incorporate service, relative to school size; and whether the institution provides scholarships for community service.
For "community service participation and hours served," the school’s rank is determined on a combined measure of the number of students participating in community service and the total number of service hours performed, both relative to school size.
