    The University of California San Diego is ranked the 9th best public university in the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report’s 2016 Best College guidebook.

    UC San Diego has consistently made it to the top ten public universities list for more than a decade.

    “It is an honor for UC San Diego to be recognized once again as one of the nation’s top public universities,” said Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla in a press release. “At UC San Diego, we are committed to providing a world-class education for our students and conducting research that benefits our society and world.”

    U.S. News and World Report also ranked UCSD the 39th best university in the U.S. among more than 200 public, private and for-profit institutions.

    The rankings are based on faculty resources, financial resources, academic reputation, graduation and retention rates, student selectivity and alumni giving.

    Just weeks ago, Washington Monthly ranked UC San Diego the number one public university in the nation. This is the sixth time the university has topped the list consecutively.
