The University of California, San Diego was ranked 36th in the World Reputation Rankings by the Times Higher Education. The Reputation Rankings complement the annual World University Rankings, published in fall 2011, in which UC San Diego was ranked 33rd.
“It is an honor for UC San Diego to be continually recognized throughout the world as an academic and research powerhouse,” said Suresh Subramani, executive vice chancellor for Academic Affairs. “This global ranking is a reflection of UC San Diego’s commitment to excellence in research, education and service, and our location and proximity to institutional partners on the La Jolla Mesa make UC San Diego an optimal environment to engage in research and scholarship.”
The 2012 Reputation Rankings are based on a survey of academic opinion, featuring 17,554 respondents from 137 countries. The international survey has attracted many responses from senior, published scholars providing rich and unique insight into the academic prestige of universities across the globe, according to the Times Higher Education.
Phil Baty, editor of the Times Higher Education Rankings, noted: “Only 100 universities are listed in our prestigious World Reputation Rankings – that is around 0.5 percent of the world’s higher education institutions. So those that are featured in the list are part of an exclusive global elite of exceptionally powerful university brands.”
Times Higher Education is a London-based publication, founded in 1971, focused on policy issues and intellectual developments within the academic community.
