NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Local students are especially “UNO Proud” today since the Center for World University Rankings were released. For the second year in a row, the University of New Orleans (UNO) has been placed in the top 1,000 universities across the world.

UNO ranks in the top 2.6 percent of 25,000 universities worldwide, 181st in America, and 633rd in the world. Only four Louisiana universities placed on the list; LSU ranks 188th in the world, Tulane ranks 288th in the world, and Louisiana Tech ranks 667th. The first five universities on the list are Harvard, Stanford, MIT, the University of Cambridge, and the University of Oxford. The United States has the most institutions on the list with 224 schools, followed by China, Japan, the United Kingdom, and Germany.

The Center for World University Rankings publishes the largest list from schools worldwide by measuring eight objective indicators: quality of education, alumni employment, quality of faculty, publications, influence, citations, broad impact and patents. Surveys and university data submissions are not considered when comprising the rankings. Rather, it measures the quality of education, training of students, and prestige of faculty members. The Center for World University Rankings provides consultations for governments and universities and publishes the most in-depth university rankings available.

It has offered diverse research-based programs, advanced shared knowledge, and added to New Orleans’ industry, culture, and economy. For almost 60 years, UNO has educated students from all 64 Louisiana parishes, all 50 states in America, and more than 130 countries around the world.
