  • (lively music)

  • - [Narrator] Last year, the pandemic caused one

  • of the most disruptive periods

  • in American higher education,

  • forcing many schools to cancel classes,

  • adopt remote learning and scale down campus activities.

  • But you wouldn't know it from this year's

  • Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education Rankings report.

  • Compared to the 2021 report,

  • there was little change in the top tier schools.

  • - The best schools in The Wall Street Journal rankings

  • are strong across the board.

  • Harvard is number one

  • because it ranked third in outcomes,

  • resources, and engagement.

  • Its only weakness was environment where it ranked 134.

  • But that only counts for 10% of the rank.

  • Stanford was right behind.

  • Rankings of third in outcomes,

  • fourth in resources, and 60 in engagement.

  • Yale and Princeton tied for the best outcomes,

  • and the California Institute of Technology

  • had the most resources.

  • (lively music)

  • - [Narrator] The rankings are based on 15 factors

  • across four main categories,

  • including student outcomes,

  • academic resources, student engagement

  • and the learning environment.

  • With so little change in the top schools,

  • what can we learn from this year's report

  • about the state of higher education amid the pandemic?

  • - I think the takeaway from this year's report,

  • and it really does stand

  • across all of the reports we've done

  • is that money matters in higher education.

  • It takes generations to build up the kind of resources

  • that can insulate universities from the kind

  • of troubles that we've seen

  • over the last couple years with COVID

  • and all the costs that that's taken into place.

  • That disruption has hurt schools lower down

  • that have less money, that are tuition dependent

  • but they're much less likely to have any kind

  • of significant impact on a school

  • with an endowment over $10 million.

  • - [Narrator] The report also measures the best value

  • among the top 250 schools.

  • - And the way the rankings do that

  • is by dividing each institution's overall score

  • by its net price, by what students are actually paying.

  • And by this measure, the number one school

  • is the City College of New York,

  • the flagship of the public city universities,

  • the CUNY system.

  • The runner-up is another CUNY school,

  • Bernard M. Baruch College,

  • followed by Berea College,

  • which is a private liberal arts school in Kentucky

  • that doesn't charge tuition.

  • - [Narrator] Only two of the schools ranked

  • in the top 10 for best value

  • are private universities: Berea and Stanford University.

  • Value aside, private universities dominate the rankings.

  • - [Doug] It's not until number 24 on our list

  • that you reach the University of Michigan

  • at Ann Arbor.

  • That's the first public school.

  • Following that, you get the University of California,

  • Los Angeles at 27.

  • So the wealthiest private schools in the country

  • are where the concentration

  • of the best schools are right now.

  • - [Narrator] The rankings reflect a growing gap

  • in price between public and private intuitions.

  • - It costs a lot of money

  • to educate a college student.

  • In a lot of cases, the tuition does not begin

  • to cover the actual cost of educating a student.

  • So if a school can draw on an endowment

  • to help support the academic spend,

  • and the different opportunities that a student has,

  • then that is gonna help out the rankings,

  • it's gonna have all the education.

  • - [Narrator] A subset of the rankings focuses

  • on school environment.

  • - [Doug] These rankings are led by La Sierra University,

  • which is a small Seventh Day Adventist school

  • in Riverside, California.

  • About half of La Sierra's

  • undergraduates receive Pell Grants.

  • Rutgers University in New Jersey comes in second

  • in the environment ranking.

  • Followed by the Cal State University of Northridge,

  • Irvine, San Francisco.

  • They all tied for third.

  • - [Narrator] The Wall Street Journal's report

  • uses a different ranking system,

  • compared to other rankings reports

  • like U.S. News' Best Colleges.

  • - Our methodology looks more closely at outcomes.

  • What a lot of the other rankings do

  • is they look at the input.

  • So how many kids are coming in

  • who are valedictorians?

  • How high are the SAT scores?

  • What are the class rank of the incoming class?

  • But Journal readers I think wanna know

  • how well the education is gonna serve them,

  • and what the outputs are going to be.

  • Where will that student be after graduation?

  • - [Narrator] College rankings

  • are meant to serve as a starting point

  • for families considering their options.

  • But the relative ranking of any school

  • shouldn't be the final word

  • on whether it's right for every applicant.
