U-M No. 23 in latest Times Higher Education world rankings


The University of Michigan is the No. 23 university in the world, moving up one spot from last year, and the No. 14 university in the United States, according to the latest Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

The list released Oct. 12 included 1,799 ranked institutions across 104 countries and regions.

U-M is one of only three public institutions in the United States to make the top 25. The others are University of California, Berkeley (No. 8) and University of California, Los Angeles (No. 21).

The rankings are based on 13 performance indicators that measure institutions across five areas: teaching (the learning environment) 30%; research (volume, income and reputation) 30%; citations (research influence) 30%; international outlook (staff, students and research) 7.5%; and industry income (knowledge transfer) 2.5%.

The 2023 World University Rankings, the largest and most diverse to date, analyzed more than 121 million citations across more than 15.5 million research publications and included survey responses from 40,000 scholars globally.
