Yale Ranked Among Top Global Universities by Newsweek
The August 21 issue of Newsweek's international edition focuses on the globalization of education, and includes a cover story by Yale University President Richard Levin. President Levin's article is titled "Universities Branch Out: From their student bodies to their research practices, universities are becoming more global."
In the same issue, the magazine included a ranking of "Top 100 Global Universities." According to Newsweek, the rankings "took into account openness and diversity, as well as distinction in research." Yale University was ranked third in the list.
Yale Law School Dean Harold Hongju Koh, an international law expert, has made globalization a priority of his deanship. "The profession of law is adapting to the new global market, and today's law students must be ready to shape the new legal systems that will arise," said Koh. "The architects of these systems, our students, will serve as not just American leaders, but global leaders," Koh added.
