UCLA was named the top U.S. public university for the second consecutive year.

In rankings published today by the Wall Street Journal and Times Higher Education, UCLA was named the No. 1 public university in the U.S.

It is the second consecutive year UCLA was rated the top U.S. public university by the WSJ/THE analysis. According to the report, UCLA “offers opportunities for inquiry, discovery, and education — and yet is a close community that provides a sense of belonging.”

The 2019 rankings are based on 15 key indicators across four areas, which the report categorizes as outcomes (which measure graduates’ salaries and student debt), resources (universities’ spending on instruction and student services), engagement (students’ views on teaching and faculty interaction) and environment (the diversity of the campus community).
