UMN ranked #29 "Best Global Universities"

As another academic year comes to an end, it’s the perfect time to look back and reflect on our successes. This productive year began auspiciously with the announcement by U.S. News & World Report that the University of Minnesota’s Twin Cities campus ranked #29 in the world in its inaugural “Best Global Universities” rankings. We cheered as two of our distinguished international alumni took their places on the world stage as prime minister of Tunisia and ambassador to the U.S. from Iceland. We capped off our year-long “China 100” celebration of the 100th anniversary of our first Chinese students with a reception at the U.S. ambassador’s residence in Beijing. And there’s so much more in which we can all take great pride! Thank you for being a partner on our journey to internationalize teaching, learning, research, and engagement at the University of Minnesota.
