LONDON, May 6, 2021 — Offering unique insight into diversity drives, research excellence, and employability enhancement, QS Quacquarelli Symonds - recognized internationally for their QS World University Rankings portfolio - released their second annual list of America’s top universities. Harvard University remains the national number-one.

The focus on Diversity provides students with information about which universities are doing most to reduce sectoral gender and racial inequities. The University of California Davis and New York University jointly lead in the Diversity indicator.

The QS USA University Rankings also prioritizes employability and teaching quality as crucial lenses to assess institutional performance.

Jack Moran, a QS Spokesperson, said: “While the overall QS World University Rankings continue to command record levels of interest, we know that the American higher education sector is wrestling with questions that do not fall within the scope of our global rankings - questions of equity, access, representation, and social justice. The QS USA University Rankings shine some independent light on those institutions that are doing most to foster the important relationship between education and social change.”

Containing more than 350 universities, this year’s QS USA Rankings is the largest yet. New York state leads as the most represented state, with 74 universities. California is the next best-performing with 38.

Public universities continue to perform strongly, with two places in this year’s top five and seven in the top 30. If you’re looking to take advantage of the benefits of studying at a public university, any of these institutions would be worth considering.
