Strong international recognition

The University of Guelph made a strong showing in three international rankings this year.

U of G placed in the top 50 among nearly 1,000 universities worldwide in the 2020 CWTS Leiden Ranking based on numbers of scientific publications and citations.

Shanghai Ranking’s Global Ranking of Academic Subjects named several research disciplines at U of G among the best at more than 4,000 universities. U of G ranked 15th globally and No. 1 in Canada in veterinary science; 27th in the world and second in Canada in agricultural sciences; and 50th globally and third in Canada in ecology.

The human resources program in the Department of Management in U of G’s Gordon S. Lang School of Business and Economics was recognized among the five best HR programs in Canada by Your Workplace magazine.

“This is richly deserved recognition of the research excellence of our faculty and proof-positive of the global impact of their research,” says Malcolm Campbell, vice-president (research).
