Times Higher Education Rankings: UW at No. 28 in the world, 4th among US public institutions

The University of Washington has been ranked No. 28 on the Times Higher Education world rankings for 2019, released Wednesday.

The UW also is fourth among U.S. public institutions — behind UCLA, UC Berkeley and the University of Michigan — a position it has held for the last three years.

“As a public university with global reach, we seek to be measured by the impact we have on the lives of our students and on communities across Washington and around the world,” UW President Ana Mari Cauce said. “We are honored to have that impact recognized by this ranking, which is a reflection of the teaching, learning and discovery taking place at the University of Washington.”

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings judge research-intensive universities across all of their core missions: teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook. The rankings use 13 performance indicators to provide comprehensive and balanced comparisons that they say are trusted by students, academics, university leaders, industry and governments.
