“As part of our Carnegie community engagement classification, Millersville University strives to support our community through our academic programs” says Dr. Daniel A. Wubah, president of Millersville University. “Public mission is one of our core values and we are committed to contributing towards the economic development of Lancaster County and south-central Pennsylvania. This ranking is a testament to that mission.”
Millersville’s placement in community and national service largely contributes to the University’s high overall national ranking. The methodology for the community and national ranking includes data submission and active participation with the National Study of Learning, Voting and Engagement at Tufts University. It also includes the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge as a measure of student voting, a program in which the Walker Fellows and the office of Civic and Community Engagement participate.
