The University provides a vibrant campus community for more than 17,000 students by blending interdisciplinary research with an worldwide reputation for educational excellence and a faculty commitment to teaching and scholarship.

The rankings compare colleges based on ACT/SAT Scores, student-faculty ratios, tuition and several other areas. The top university was UC's campus at Riverside, followed by Santa Cruz and Irvine. The social mobility ranking is based primarily on the graduation rates of Pell-awarded students, schools' percentages of Pell Grant recipients, and comparisons of graduation rates between students with and without Pell Grants.

"We are thrilled to see our progress reflected in this year's numbers", says Jean Morrison, University provost and chief academic officer.
