Style Guide: Rankings

The University of Michigan has been an academic powerhouse for most of its 200-year history. This tradition of academic excellence can be partially quantified by U-M's inclusion on the most important global "top college and university" ranking lists, including U.S. News & World Report, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Times Higher Education, and QS. 

We are proud of U-M's strong performance over the years. But rankings are just one part of the story, and the methodology behind them changes from year to year. We encourage parents and students to consider rankings as one helpful metric that can help students select the right university. Other U-M rankings can be found through the Office of Budget and Planning

Here are a few of U-M’s recent rankings.
