In Washington Monthly’s annual college rankings measuring universities’ contributions to the public good, the University of California, San Diego has been rated the No. 1 college in the nation for the fifth consecutive year.

Khosla. “This is an extraordinary achievement, as the criteria for this ranking exemplify our core values and our vision to be a student-centered, research-focused, service-oriented public university that provides opportunity for all.”
