DLSU is the lone Philippine private university in 2021 Times Higher Education World University Rankings
De La Salle University is the only Philippine private university included in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings for 2021, retaining its position in the 1,001+ bracket.
This is the third straight year that DLSU has been part of the global ranking since its inaugural appearance in 2019. THE WUR requires a threshold number of Scopus publications, combined with data on teaching, research, innovation, international outlook, and reputation.
Vice Chancellor for Research and Innovation Dr. Raymond Girard Tan says that DLSU’s inclusion in the rankings underscores the University’s commitment to contribute to the country’s development through research, especially in this time of pandemic.
“We actively engage in research in order to contribute to social transformation and sustainable development. Particularly this year, we initiated a number of studies that we hope can contribute to mitigating the impact of COVID-19,” he said.
The 2021 edition ranks more than 1,500 institutions out of an estimated 26,000 HEIs around the world.
