Saint Mary’s College of California 有 earned recognition as the No. 8 master’s university in the country when it comes to service, according to a 2023 report issued by 《十大赌博正规老平台》 杂志. Of the multiple prestigious colleges in California, Saint Mary’s is one of only two master’s universities to make the Top 20 when it comes to service.

To those familiar with the 160-year-old college in Moraga, this national recognition doesn’t come as a surprise. Saint Mary’s was founded with a commitment to make education accessible—to instill in graduates the transformative power of education, both when it comes to creating opportunities for individuals and changing the world.

詹妮弗Pigza 领导 Catholic Institute for Lasallian 社会行动 (CILSA). “Every Saint Mary’s undergraduate 有 an engaged learning experience that invites them to consider the common good and our responsibilities therein,她指出. “And through deeply immersive experiences, such as summer fellowships and internships, students grow their capacities to be compassionate and thoughtful leaders who partner with communities to advance equity. No matter their professional trajectory, we want all undergraduate and graduate students to consider how the promotion of justice can be a part of their lives well beyond their time at Saint Mary’s.”

根据 《十大赌博正规老平台》, Saint Mary’s is also the top Lasallian master’s university overall in the United States. Lasallian colleges are grounded in the tradition and leadership of the De LaSalle Christian Brothers, the largest Roman Catholic order dedicated to teaching. And when it comes to service, Saint Mary’s earns a spot on the 《十大赌博正规老平台》 列为第. 2 Catholic master’s university in the country.

Top 10 Percent in the Country—and a Different Kind of College Ranking

When it comes to overall rankings of master’s universities—institutions that primarily grant bachelor’s and master’s degrees—《十大赌博正规老平台》 puts Saint Mary’s among the top 10 percent in the United States.

《十大赌博正规老平台》’s rankings consist of three equally weighted portions: social mobility, 研究, and community and national service. Top-ranked colleges needed to be excellent across the full breadth measures, rather than excelling in just one measure. The 杂志’s rankings give props to those colleges and universities, 像圣玛丽教堂, that help non-wealthy students earn remunerative degrees, encourage students to vote and serve their country, and produce the scholars and scholarship that drive economic growth and human betterment.
