Washington Monthly coverAccording to the 2014 "Washington Monthly" college rankings, Whitman College is the 29th best liberal arts college in the country.

"Washington Monthly" uses a unique methodology in its rankings, focusing on schools that contribute to society and enable low-income students to attend and graduate with a degree rather than on schools which reject the highest number of applicants.

Schools are rated 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 PhDs) and service (encouraging students to give something back to their country).
