The CWUR — based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia — used a total of eight indicators, including quality of teaching, quality of faculty and alumni employment, to rank the world’s top 1,000 universities in its report.
Below are Cornell’s ranking for each of the report’s criteria:

Dartmouth College — ranked at number 44 — and Brown University — ranked at 81 — are the only Ivy League schools that did not appear in the top 15 on the list.
