Center ranks UO in top 2 percent of world's universities

The University of Oregon is ranked in the top 1.4 percent of degree-granting institutions in a new list from the Center for World University Rankings.

The center measures the quality of education and training of students. Rankings are based on eight parameters: quality of education, alumni employment, quality of faculty, publications, influence, citation, broad impact and patents.

“The rankings measure the quality of education and training of students as well as the prestige of the faculty members and the quality of their research,” said Nadim Mahassen, president of the center.

In addition to being placed in the top 1.4 percent of world universities, the organization also ranked the UO No. 127 nationwide.
