Civic Engagement: College Ranking

Civic engagement is the leading criterion for a ranking of colleges published by Westfield State College (Massachusetts). In a report called Saviors of Our Cities, the 2009 Survey of College & University Civic Partnerhips presents 25 institutions, as it has done since the survey's inception in 2006. Added in 2009, is the Honor Roll of an additional 116 institutions.

The more informal descriptor of the survey is 2009 Top 25 'Best Neighbor' Colleges & Universities. The survey grew out of scholarly research by Evan S. Dobelle, who now serves as President at Westfield State.
