USF now sits at No. 45 among all public universities in the U.S. News & World Report’s annual ranking – a decrease of three spots from its place at No. 42 last year.
Last year’s ranking was the university’s highest ever. This was the fifth consecutive year that USF was listed within the top 50 of all public universities, according to a Monday universitywide email sent by President Rhea Law.
It also received a No. 89 ranking among all universities, including public and private.
President Rhea Law noted in the email that USF has gone up 43 spots among all public institutions, and 72 spots overall.
Though it represented a decrease in ranking, Law wrote that the new ranking, along with USF’s invitation to join the Association of American Universities in June, “provides a significant return on investment for our students, the Tampa Bay region and our state.”
“We are focused on sustaining this positive momentum as we continue our pursuit of excellence,” Law wrote.
