In the latest Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education, Temple rose to “highest research activity,” or R1, placing it among the top 4 percent of all four-year institutions in the nation.
This milestone follows Temple's ascent in U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges rankings (2018), in which the university earned the rank of No. 115. Several programs have also climbed the U.S. News ranks in recent years, including:
- The Beasley School of Law ranked to No. 53 in the nation, with four individual programs ranking in the top 15.
- The College of Education rose to No. 48, climbing 15 spots in three years.
- The Lewis Katz School of Medicine improved from No. 55 to No. 54 for research.
- Tyler’s glass program ranked No. 2 in the country.
From breakthrough research that’s a step closer to a cure for AIDS to bold and innovative ways to increase college access and reduce student debt, Temple is raising its national profile to new heights.
