August 29, 2019 0 By Stanley Isaacs


The 2018 Wall Street Journal Times Higher
Education rankings are out and call Purdue the 5thbest public university in the country. The rankings, according to The Wall Street
Journal, focus on performance indicators for student success and learning. 40% of the overall score is based on student
outcomes, 30 percent from resources, 20 percent from engagement with students and 10 percent
from the learning environment. The rankings include a list of more than 1,000
colleges and universities in the United States. President Daniels praises the methodology
and says “”We continue to thank our alumni for their excellence and our faculty for their
commitment to provide a high-quality education at the highest proven value.”
