UM Tops for Service!
The University of Montana has been named the top university in the nation for service to its community and the country. The report, from the Washington Monthly magazine, examined UM's contribution to the public-good in three broad categories: social mobility, research and promoting public service. The ranking, they said, reflects UM’s deep commitment to civic service, a value that is embedded within UM’s institutional mission and broader public engagement. In the “service” category, UM ranked above many of the nation’s prestigious private and public institutions, including George Washington University, Notre Dame, Duke, Georgetown and Johns Hopkins University, among others.
