Rutgers University shared their world ranking earlier today in a post on Facebook that stated, “Need another reason to be proud of ‪#‎Rutgers? U.S. News & World Report named Rutgers University-New Brunswick in the top 100 on its list of Best Global Universities.”

 “As an increasing number of students are planning to enroll in universities outside of their own country, the Best Global Universities rankings – which focus specifically on schools' academic research and reputation overall and not on their separate undergraduate or graduate programs – can help those students accurately compare institutions around the world,” said Robert Morse Chief Data Strategist at U.S. News & World Report.
