Carleton Ranked Among Highest In Graduates Entering Public Service

The November/December edition of Washington Monthly ranked Carleton no.6 among "the top twenty liberal arts colleges (as ranked by the U.S. News & World Report)" in its article "Selective Service." The list of the nation's top colleges and universities with the highest percentage of their graduates entering public service was compiled by The Aspen Institute, an international nonprofit organization dedicated to educational and policy studies, based on LinkedIn data. According to the article, 35.6% of Carleton graduates worked in the public service (government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and public education) over the last ten years. Carleton also was recognized for providing grants for students working at NGO internships to foster careers in the public interest sector.
