The report, titled “Ladders, Labs or Laggards? Which Public Institutions Contribute the Most,” rates UH, including its community colleges, at number 19 among “leaders,” which Brookings defines as “high-mobility, high-research” four-year public research universities. Only the country’s top 75 leaders were listed; the rankings were based on information from 342 selective, four-year public university campuses and university systems.
“We are appreciative of this latest affirmation that UH is a world-class research university that stays true to our core mission of providing a first-rate college education to the people of our state,” said Michael Bruno, UH Mānoa vice chancellor for research and interim vice chancellor for academic affairs. “We are also proud that we provide even the most disadvantaged of our population the opportunity to be inspired by and learn from the brightest minds in the nation, all while working to solve some of society’s most pressing problems.”
