UH Mānoa highly ranked for diversity, research, employability of graduates

From UH News,  May 5, 2021

The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa is one of the best universities in the U.S. for learning experience, employability, diversity and research, according to the 2021 Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) USA University Rankings, released on May 5. 

UH Mānoa placed No. 97 overall and No. 55 among public universities in the nation. UH Mānoa was also among the top schools with the highest ethnic student diversity. 

QS evaluated 352 institutions out of nearly 4,300 degree-granting postsecondary institutions in the U.S. This is the second year QS—a global leader in higher education strategy based in London—released rankings for U.S. universities and colleges. 

“UH Mānoa’s standing in the QS USA University Rankings is a testament to the world class expertise of our faculty and staff. They bring this expertise to their work each and every day to prepare our students to be contributing and successful world citizens,” UH Mānoa Provost Michael Bruno said.

In the 2021 QS World University Rankings, released in June 2020, UH Mānoa ranked No. 333 internationally based on academic and employer reputation, faculty/student ratio, citations per faculty, and the proportion of international faculty and students.
