Washington Monthly's 2011 national university rankings

Lists six universities from Tennessee.  Four publics and two privates. ETSU is fifth among Tennessee universities and 225th overall. These rankings look at three items: Social Mobility, Research, and Service.  This results in some curious rankings, with Tennessee State University ranking above Vanderbilt, for example.  I've pulled out the Tennessee institutions and listed their overall rank within the top 200.  In other categories, Tennessee has fifteen colleges and universities ranked in the Master's Universities, led by Lipscomb University at 78th. There are seven colleges and universities in the Liberal Arts Colleges category, led by Rhodes Colleges at 14.  And in the Baccalaureate College category, there are ten institutions from Tennessee listed with Martin Methodist College the top ranked at 38.  It's interesting that ETSU is listed in the National University category while Middle Tennessee State University is listed in Master's Universities.
