A guide to what college rankings don't tell you.

University of Virginia - Wise

Wise, VA

The University of Virginia - Wise says, 'The courses required of students in their first two years at the College serve not only to acquaint them with the many different disciplines, but more significantly to introduce students to the accumulated knowledge of the world in which they live. These courses help provide an understanding of the underpinnings of society, a knowledge of how that society functions, an awareness of culture, ours and others, and insights into the values on which our civilization is built.'

FIRE Speech Code School Rating
A yellow light institution maintains policies that could be interpreted to suppress protected speech or policies that, while clearly restricting freedom of speech, restrict relatively narrow categories of speech.

Warning: FIRE believes that free speech is not only a moral imperative, but also an essential element of a college education. However, private universities, as private associations, possess their own right to free association, which allows them to prioritize other values above the right to free speech if they wish to do so. Therefore, when a private university clearly and consistently states that it holds a certain set of values above a commitment to freedom of speech, FIRE warns prospective students and faculty members of this fact. Six schools surveyed for this report meet these criteria.
