You know that I love a good set of numbers and these are fantastic. The new world rankings from Times Higher Education have been released. You can read all about them in this UTSA Today article. In summary:

UTSA has been ranked among the top 100 universities in the United States and among the top 400 in the world according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2016-2017. The annual rankings measure world-class universities across their core missions including teaching and research. There are more than 20,000 universities worldwide.

Only six Texas institutions were included in the top 400. They are UTSA, UT-Austin, UT-Dallas, Texas A&M University, Rice University and the University of Houston.

The monuments at John Peace Boulevard will be lit in celebration of our newest world ranking. Our academic experience is ranked among the top 100 in the United States and we are an extremely strong competitor in the state of Texas.

Please take a moment to share the good news with people you know. Roadrunner Nation is as strong academically as it is with pride, tradition, student services and student life. We know that our students are getting an incredible experience and they will be an asset to employers worldwide. It is time to tell our story.

Best wishes,

We Are UTSA! We Are Student Affairs!
