Forbes includes Millsaps in "America's Best Colleges"

"The Forbes' rankings are the only major rankings that evaluate colleges exclusively on outcomes such as student satisfaction, graduates' employment success and low student debt rather than inputs such as the size of the endowment or spending on academic programs," said Dr. S. Keith Dunn, senior vice president and dean of the College. "Millsaps is proud to be recognized for the positive impact the College has on its students.".




Millsaps College leads the list of 13 United Methodist-related colleges named among the top 100 liberal arts colleges by Washington Monthly magazine.

The rankings are based on a school's contributions to the public good in three broad categories:

  • social mobility, which credits colleges for enrolling many low-income students and helping them earn degrees
  • research production, particularly at schools whose undergraduates go on to earn Ph.D.s
  • commitment to serve

Washington Monthly, which began the rankings in 2005, gives highest marks to colleges that are both effective and inexpensive.
