U-M moves up on world university rankings list
The University of Michigan moved up one spot in the 2012 Times Higher Education World Reputation Rankings, bucking the trend of lower rankings for most U.S. universities, the Detroit Free Press reported.
U-M rose from 13 to 12 on the list. U-M spokesman Rick Fitzgerald told the Free Press the ranking is a reflection of how carefully the university has made cuts in tough economic times. Other U.S. universities’ drop on the list was attributed to cuts in state and federal aid.
