Howard University only HBCU in top 1000 universities in the world (1155 hits)

According to Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings for 2018-2019, Howard University stood as the lone representative for HBCUs on the list of 1,000 of the top schools in the entire world.

They ranked in as tied for 501st on the list of worldwide universities and colleges. They also come in as tied for the 113th best college and university (tied with Drexel University and Lehigh University - both in Pennsylvania) in the entire North American Continent (which also included Canada's colleges and universities.)

The QS World Ranking of Universities assesses university performance across research, teaching, employability and “internationalisation” using six performance indicators, which carry a different weighting when calculating the overall scores.

Four of the indicators are based on ‘hard’ data, while the remaining two (Academic Reputation and Employer Reputation) are based on global surveys – one of academics (more than 70,000) and another of employers (more than 37,000) – each the largest of its kind.

The six performance indicators include:
- Academic reputation (40%) – a global survey of more than 70,000 academics
- Citations per faculty (20%) – a ‘citation’ means a piece of research being referred to (cited) within another piece of research.
- Student-to-faculty ratio (20%) - the number of academic staff employed relative to the number of students enrolled
- Employer reputation (10%) – a global survey of more than 37,000 graduate employers
- International faculty ratio (5%)
- International student ratio (5%)

The final two indicators measure “how successful a university has been in attracting international students and academics” based on the proportion of international students and faculty members.
