The Cathedral of Learning behind trees on a sunny dayThe University of Pittsburgh has again been named the top public university in the Northeast, according to recent rankings by the Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education College Rankings.

This is the fourth time in five years that Pitt has been recognized as No. 1 on this nationally regarded ranking. In addition to being named the top public university in the Northeast, Pitt was also ranked No. 25 among best public schools in the country.

“This ranking celebrates our boundary pushers, brilliant visionaries and bold thinkers,” said Chancellor Patrick Gallagher. “It’s hard-earned praise for faculty, students and staff who continue to advance the University of Pittsburgh’s mission—leveraging knowledge for society’s gain—in powerful and meaningful ways.”

The ranking is based on 15 factors across four key areas: student outcomes, including graduate salaries and debt burdens (40%), academic resources (30%), student engagement (20%) and diversity (10%).

In September 2019, the U.S. News & World Report ranked Pitt among the nation’s top 20 public colleges and universities in their 2020 Best Colleges rankings.
