The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education College Ranking is a list with rankings of higher education institutions. It is designed to “emphasize graduate success and student learning.”
The rankings are compiled by U.S. experts and universities using 15 individual performance metrics that are grouped into four pillars: resources (30 percent), engagement (20 percent), outcome (40 percent) and environment (10 percent).
Data sources for these rankings include the Times Higher Education (THE) U.S. Student Survey and THE Academic Reputation Survey, along with public data from IPEDS (Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System), the College Scorecard and Federal Student Aid on areas including completion rates and graduate employment.
