The University of Texas at Austin has been named the 28th-best university in the world by Times Higher Education World University rankings, considered the most authoritative assessment of world universities

The London-based organization evaluates 13 factors in the areas of teaching, research, influence of research, innovation and international outlook, and named UT the No. 6 public university in the U.S

UT Austin’s highest marks were in its influence of research, as measured by the number of times faculty members’ studies are cited by peers; overall research, which includes funding, number of articles published and quality; and teaching, which is based largely on the university’s reputation among scholars

Also in 2014, UT was named No. 29 in the world by the Center for World University Rankings, No. 39 in the world by the Academic Ranking of World Universities and No. 53 in the nation by U.S. News and World Report

“I’m proud Times Higher Education has recognized UT as one of the world’s top 29 universities for the fourth consecutive year,” UT President Bill Powers said in a statement announcing the rankings. “It’s a testament to the hard work of our faculty and staff. All Texans should take great pride that UT Austin keeps company with the world’s very best universities.”
