The Center for World University Rankings recently included the University of New Orleans among the top 1,000 universities in the world, placing it 633rd globally and 181st  in the United States.

The center determines its rankings based on quality of education and training for students, prestige of university faculty and quality of research from the institution. The rankings are established through independent information on quality of education, alumni employment, quality of faculty, publications, influence, citations, broad impact and patents. The center examines more than 25,000 institutions around the world to determine its top 1,000.

Four universities from Louisiana made it into the top 1,000, including Louisiana State University, Tulane University and UNO, which is in the top 2.6 percent of institutions worldwide by virtue of its placement on the list.

The top five institutions in the world come from the United States and the United Kingdom, including Harvard, Stanford, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Cambridge, and the University of Oxford.
