Times Higher Education rank UCLA No.1 public university

443 on The Wall Street Journal and Times Higher Education second annual college rankings, which looks at how well public and private higher education institutions prepare students for life after graduation.

Purdue is fifth among public institutions and 43rd overall nationally, according to the rankings.

The joint ranking by WSJ and Times Higher Education, a London-based publication, measures four areas of performance: resources available to support education; ability of degree programs and teaching to stimulate learning; diversity and inclusiveness; and propensity of the university to contribute to student success.

RIT placed 130th out of 1,054 USA colleges and universities in The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education College Ranking. "It is especially satisfying that this come so quickly on the heels of a wonderful ranking by U.S. News and World Report". The ranking incorporated the results of the Times Higher Education U.S. Student Survey, which collected the opinions of more than 200,000 current university students, government data sources and findings from the Times Higher Education Academic Reputation Survey.

The rankings also place Texas A&M in the top 10 percent in the overall ranking among 1,054 colleges and universities surveyed. UCLA, University of Michigan, University of North Carolina and University of California, Berkeley, rank ahead of Purdue among public institutions. "We are seeing some real challenges in terms of resources, and I think this kind of inequality, this defunding of great American public schools, is a serious issue".
