Top 10 US Universities: Princeton, MIT, US News & World Report Best College Rankings 2022-23

Princeton University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have secured the top two positions for 2022-23, with Harvard University, Stanford University and Yale University tied for third place in the national list of universities, according to US News and World Report. .

Princeton has topped the national list of universities for the 12th year in a row.

The University of Chicago ranks sixth, Johns Hopkins University and the University of Pennsylvania are tied for seventh. The California Institute of Technology, best known for its research and engineering programs, ranks ninth, and Northwestern University and Duke University are tied for tenth.

The top 5 rankings continue to be dominated by the same universities as last year.

Released Monday, US News and World Report’s 38th annual ranking of America’s best universities evaluated 1,500 US degree-granting institutions.

The ranked colleges were grouped into four broad categories: national universities, national liberal arts colleges, regional universities and regional colleges. The rankings are based on 17 parameters that assess academic quality, including graduation and retention rate, undergraduate academic reputation and financial resources per student, among others.

This year some factors in assigning rankings were changed: the SAT/ACT calculation policy was changed because many students were unable to take the standardized test due to the pandemic or financial constraints. Starting this year, if less than 50 percent of a high school’s incoming freshmen submitted their scores, it would not be considered in calculating the high school’s ranking. Instead, parameters such as high school class and average graduation rate would be given a higher weight.

In addition, when calculating “faculty resources”, part-time faculty with a final degree would also be taken into account in addition to the full-time faculty assessed above.
