Ranking of Private not-for-profit, 4-year or above colleges educating for Character

W.E.B. DuBois, in his criticism of Booker T. Washington, spoke of “education that encourages aspiration, that sets the loftiest of ideals and seeks as an end culture and character.” Institutions in this tradition do not structure their education with jobs or careers as the primary goal, but rather to help students become better people.

1 LaGrange College
2 Beacon College
3 University of Dallas
4 Lackawanna College
5 Elmira College
6 Bon Secours Memorial College of Nursing
7 Hodges University
8 Hawaii Pacific University
9 Franklin College
10 San Francisco Conservatory of Music
This ranking is according to a single metric, and so will necessarily highlight colleges and universities on the extremes. If you are looking for more well-balanced institutions, try searching according to multiple metrics, or try matching colleges based on your own aspirations.
