(July 28, 2014) -- The University of Texas at San Antonio ranks No. 103 among top universities in the United States and No. 256 worldwide in a recent report of the top 1,000 universities by the Center for World University Rankings (CWUR).
The CWUR publishes the only global university ranking that measures the quality of education and training of students as well as the prestige of the faculty members and the quality of their research without relying on surveys and university data submissions.
"This recognition is another affirmation that our top-tier faculty, researchers, students and alumni are making meaningful contributions to society and transforming the world," said UTSA President Ricardo Romo.
The CWUR uses eight objective indicators to rank the world's top 1,000 universities including quality of education, alumni employment, quality of faculty, publications, influence, research citations, broad impact and patents.
Three indicators make up 75 percent of the scoring process:
In addition to the CUWR ranking, for three consecutive years, UTSA has been listed among the Top 100 universities in the world under 50 years old by Times Higher Education.
