Faculty Expertise, Campus Life Excel in CWUR, Princeton Review Rankings

The UA earned recognition for its world-class research from the Center for World University Rankings and for quality of campus life from The Princeton Review.

The University of Arizona finished in the top 0.4% among more than 20,000 higher education institutions worldwide in the Center for World University Rankings, released Monday.

The UA also appears in the Princeton Review's latest edition of "The Best 385 Colleges: 2020 Edition," with top marks in sustainability (95 out of a possible 100), fire safety (91) and quality of life (85).

The UA's overall CWUR score of 83.3 placed 69th overall and 43rd among U.S. universities. The number of UA alumni who have won major international awards, prizes and medals contributed to the university's strong showing in the ratings.

"It is gratifying to see the University of Arizona firmly establish its position alongside the world's top academic research institutions once again," said UA President Robert C. Robbins. "Our faculty's breakthrough research continues to strengthen our position as a global leader in education and innovation."

The UA's rankings by category:
  • Quality of faculty: 47
  • Research performance: 86
  • Alumni employment: 180
  • Quality of education: 276
CWUR annually publishes the only global university rankings that use quantitative measures to assess the quality of education, the prestige of faculty members and the quality of faculty research, without relying on surveys and university data submissions.

In the Princeton Review's college guide, released Tuesday, the UA earned praise as "a perfect blend of long-lasting traditions, strong spirit … and empowering devotion to the community" with professors that are "very passionate about their research and the subject material for the course."

The Princeton Review also publishes several top-20 ratings for various categories relating to academics and campus life. The UA earned recognition for active Greek life (No. 11) and best health services (No. 12).

The UA also earned a place among the top 100 higher education institutions in the world in the latest Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings, released July 17.

The U of A campus is a beautiful, peaceful place for research. Many faculty remember the lovely campus with wonderful hidden gardens when they move on to other universities. There is a pond with turtles in it and fantastic cactus displays. So many people who live here are oblivious to the great university we live near. This is the place where tree ring research began and there is a museum honoring A.E. Douglass, our very own world class genius. An arch on campus shows other pioneering scientists from the campus. There is a tradition of sending scientists between Harvard, U of A and Berkeley in many bio fields. Anthropology, Archaeology, Astronomy and Optical Science are other great departments. We are in with Harvard, Berkeley for being considered Tier One Universities in the amount of National Institute of Health and National Science Foundation Grants. Did you know this?? So if you think Tucson is culturally backward, it could be you just don't get out much. Hang around campus and you'll meet people from the Netherlands, England, France, Turkey, Lithuania,...

Kudos to UA! If I end up moving to the Tucson area, I will be eager to explore the campus. Beautiful photo. About how many students attend UA? Is there a "downtown" area near campus with coffee shops and restaurants?

I guess ASU in Tempe is the "sports" school in the state. Michigan, where I live, fired a coach who then went to ASU a few years back. It didn't end well for either school. LOL
