Forbes 2022 College Rankings

Looks like Forbes has us notched at #111 among all American Universities, and #44 among Public universities.

Current ranking among Texas Schools:

#12 Rice
#43 TU
#52 TAMU
#83 SMU
#111 UH
#121 UTD
#143 TCU
#152 TTU
#162 Trinity
#164 Baylor
#271 North Texas
#307 UTA

Hopefully, our continued investment in Academics, Athletics, Research, Campus, etc. Allows UH to take its place among the upper echelons of upper echelons among Universities.


UTD is where a few people I knew transferred after flunking out of Cullen College EE progam…

How have they risen so far/fast?

152 in the 2023 Forbes Rankings

Still 5th in Texas, as UT-Dallas moves ahead of us while SMU drops behind us. Lots of movement this year. These rankings seem to penalize expensive private schools that do not produce better employment outcomes than state schools. For their methodology, see here.

Texas was 43 now 31
