U.S. News and World Report: "For the fourth consecutive year, U.S. News & World Report has named UC Riverside the top public university in the nation for social mobility. UCR has been the top public university every year since U.S. News began a separate ranking for social mobility four years ago."
Washington Monthly: "The UC campus in Riverside, ranked number two this year, stands out as a model for other public universities to follow.... Riverside is unusually focused on social mobility. Since 2006, its enrollment has grown by 25 percent. Half of all freshmen are first-generation college students, and the campus is the most racially and ethnically diverse within the UC system. Riverside’s focus on public service exceeds that of almost every other national university."
