Times Higher Education considers the following factors for its rankings: teaching, research, citations, international outlook and industry income. Regarded as one of the leading national and international university rankings focused on research and academic excellence, Times Higher Education considered more than 1,500 universities out of more than 26,000 institutions worldwide to be eligible for its World University Rankings by subject.

“The rankings demonstrate the superior quality of work by our faculty, students and staff across many different disciplines, providing further evidence of our status as one of the world’s great research universities,” UH Mānoa Provost Michael Bruno said.
