Top 0.5% of universities worldwide in 2017

Via ASU Now.  ASU’s global engagement expands across continents through our research and education, and the ranking exemplifies ASU’s pursuit of excellence and meaningful societal impact around the world.

CUWR is the largest academic ranking of global universities using a quantitative approach around the following eight objectives: quality of education, alumni employment, quality of faculty, publications, influence, citations, broad impact, and patents.

In 2016, President Barack Obama lauded ASU as an “academic and technological leader” after its partnership with Vietnamese universities to boost training in science, technology, engineering and math. Additionally, ASU partnered with two international research institutions to launch the PLuS Alliance, a tri-continental partnership to find solutions to global challenges and expand access to world-class learning.
