NMSU Named To Center For World University Rankings

  The Center for World University Rankings listed New Mexico State University at No. 467 on their 2014 rankings, which placed NMSU in the top 2.2 percent among the more than 22,000 degree-granting institutions of higher education worldwide. 

“This recognition serves to highlight something we have known for quite some time,” said NMSU President Garrey Carruthers. "New Mexico State University is home to outstanding faculty members and some of the brightest students in the nation."

The Center for World University Rankings distributes the only global university performance tables that gauge both the quality of education and training of students along with prestige of faculty members and the quality of their research without the use of surveys and university data submissions. 

The Center for World University Rankings list is based on eight indicators, which include quality of education, measured by the number of a university’s alumni who have won major international awards, prizes, and medals relative to the university’s size (25 percent); alumni employment, measured by the number of a university’s alumni who currently hold CEO positions at the world’s top companies relative to the university’s size (25 percent); quality of faculty, measured by the number of academics who have won major international awards, prizes, and medals (25 percent); publications, measured by the number of research papers appearing in reputable journals (5 percent); influence, measured by the number of research papers appearing in highly-influential journals (5 percent); citations, measured by the number of highly-cited research papers (5 percent); broad Impact, measured by the university’s h-Index (5 percent); patents, measured by the number of international patent filings (5 percent).
