Ranking Web of World Universities

The ranking of Colleges and Universities and Open Access Initiatives is published twice a year (January and July) including more than 16,000 Higher Education Institutions worldwide listed in the Directory.

The "Webometrics Ranking of World Universities" is an initiative of the Cybermetrics Lab, a research group belonging to the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), the largest public research body in Spain.

All of the 25 top rated universities are in the United States!

I attended the following universities in order of attendance:
  • UCLA (ranked 18th in the world)
  • UC Berkeley (4)
  • Michigan State (Peace Corps training) (23)
  • UC Irvine (57)

I have taught at the following universities in temporal order:
  • UCLA (18)
  • UC Berkeley (4)
  • Universidad Santa Maria (Chile) (1179, 45 in Latin America)
  • Universidad Catolica de Valparaiso (Chile) (1504, 70 in Latin America)
  • UC Irvine (57)
  • Universidad del Valle (Colombia) (865, 31 in Latin America)
  • University of Maryland (19)
  • George Washington University (198)

As you can see, I have spent a lot of time in universities. I seem to have lucked out in spending time in the better universities in their regions.
