The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa is being recognized for academic excellence and student experience in the 2022 Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education U.S. college rankings, released on September 21. About 800 of the nation’s 2,700 four-year institutions were deemed eligible for the rankings. UH’s flagship campus came in No. 244 overall and No. 49 in the west region.

The rankings were based on four categories:

  • Outcomes (graduation rate, value added to graduate salary, debt after graduation and academic reputation)
  • Resources (finance per student, faculty per student and research papers per faculty)
  • Engagement (student engagement, student recommendation, interaction with teachers and students and number of accredited programs)
  • Environment (proportion of international students, student diversity, student inclusion and staff diversity)

Data for the rankings came from a variety of sources, including government data, and student and academic surveys conducted by Times Higher Education.

“We appreciate this recognition from the Wall Street Journal and Times Higher Education. UH Mānoa’s standing in these rankings solidifies our position as one of the nation’s best universities for academic excellence and the student experience,” UH Mānoa Provost Michael Bruno said.
