Baruch College Ranks #1 in Social Mobility

Baruch College ranked #1 out of more than 900 colleges nationally in CollegeNET’s annual Social Mobility Index (SMI) for the second year in a row.

For the past three years, CollegeNET has been ranking four-year higher education institutions throughout the U.S. according to how effectively they enroll students with low-income backgrounds and graduate them into promising careers.

High SMI rankings - such as Baruch College’s #1 placement - means that “a college is contributing in a responsible way to solving the dangerous problem of economic immobility in our country.”

“Since its founding, Baruch College been a gateway to economic opportunity for historically underserved students. Today, the College is consistently praised on a growing roster of social mobility indices that evaluate an institution’s ability to place low-income and minority students on the path to financial security and professional success,” said Mitchel B. Wallerstein, Ph.D., president of Baruch College. “Consider that more than 31 percent of Baruch students come from households that earn $20,000 or less, and in 2015, Baruch graduates earned an average salary of nearly $50,000 per year. Moreover, 84 percent of them graduated with no student loan debt. That represents life-changing opportunity for generations of deserving students.”

Baruch College’s #1 SMI ranking with CollegeNET adds to the College’s growing roster of rankings and recognitions that focus on value, student debt, and return on investment.
