Posted on 9/5/2013
The Washington Monthly, a magazine focusing on politics and government, has released its 2013 ranking of U.S. community colleges. The rankings use best educational practices and student success as measures, and about two-thirds of all community colleges in the country were included in the analysis - roughly 700 institutions. Dakota College at Bottineau was ranked 27th out of the 700. Among the factors used to calculate the rankings were active and collaborative learning, student-faculty interactions, support for learners, academic challenge, retention/graduation rates, and ratio of degrees awarded. According to the Washington Monthly, the best community colleges have deeply ingrained cultures of academic achievement and make outstanding contributions to the public good.
