Johns Hopkins moves up to #9 in US News national rankings

Johns Hopkins University has again been recognized as one of the nation's top universities in the annual U.S. News and World Report Best Colleges rankings, the longest-running and most widely cited assessment of U.S. colleges and universities.

Johns Hopkins moved up to No. 9 in latest U.S. News rankings, released Monday, September 14, after being ranked 10th in four of the past five years. JHU shares the No. 9 spot with Northwestern and Cal Tech in the National Universities category, a broad assessment of more than 400 U.S. colleges and universities for 2021.

This marks just the second time in the 36 years U.S. News has published its rankings that Hopkins has ranked ninth or better. Due to a change in methodology, JHU jumped from No. 14 in 1999 to No. 7 in 2000, then fell back to No. 15 a year later.
