The University of Minnesota College of Education and Human Development (CEHD) has been recognized as the top public school of education in the Academic Ranking of World Universities’ 2017 college rankings. CEHD was ranked third overall, behind prestigious private universities Harvard and Stanford.
The ARWU college rankings are published by the ShanghaiRanking consultancy, an independent organization dedicated to objectively measuring the impact and quality of educational institutions around the world. ShanghaiRankings has published the Academic Ranking of World Universities since 2009. According to the organization, the ARWU “uses six objective indicators to rank world universities, including the number of alumni and staff winning Nobel Prizes and Fields Medals, number of highly cited researchers selected by Thomson Reuters, number of articles published in journals of Nature and Science, number of articles indexed in Science Citation Index – Expanded and Social Sciences Citation Index, and per capita performance of a university.”
Based on these criteria, over 1,500 universities and colleges are ranked, with the top 500 published. It’s an incredible honor for CEHD to place third in these prestigious college rankings – and another indication of the reputation our college has around the world. This recognition from ARWU is another in a recent string of accolades CEHD has received, including high placement in the annual U.S. News & World Report college rankings and placing in the top 10 for student satisfaction ratings in a report published by SR Education Group.
We’re gratified that the groundbreaking research and impactful instruction going on at CEHD is being recognized. Many thanks to our dedicated professors, researchers, administrators, staff, students, alumni and donors. It’s your dedication and passion for CEHD that makes our college one of the best in the world.
