Arkansas Tech Ranked Top 5% In Social Mobility

A report from CollegeNET shows Arkansas Tech University in Russellville ranks among the top 5% of colleges and universities nationwide in terms of opportunity for upward mobility for its students.

CollegeNET’s 2017 Social Mobility Index (SMI) looks at the economic background of a university’s student body and compares it to early career salary for graduates, while also taking into account schools’ tuition rate, graduation rate and endowment.

ATU received an SMI score of 57.8, ranking 68th among the 1,363 institutions looked at in the survey. It marks the second consecutive year in which ATU has been among the top 70 institutions in the nation, and it is the fourth consecutive year in which ATU has been No. 1 in social mobility in Arkansas, according to a press release from ATU.    MORE
