Overall, 177 American universities are ranked out of a total of 1,300 institutions in the QS World University Rankings 2022. But of these 177, some 91 have declined in rank (51.4%), while 29 improve their position (16.4%); 38 remain neutral within their rank or band (21.5%) and 19 are new entrants into the table. Although Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) celebrates an unprecedented, unbroken decade as the world’s top university, the overall picture of a downward trend is better reflected in Harvard University (fifth) falling to its lowest position in the history of the rankings. The US’s top 10 universities were Massachusetts Institute of Technology (first), Stanford (joint third), Harvard (fifth), California Institute of Technology (sixth), University of Chicago (10th), University of Pennsylvania (13th), Yale University (joint 14th), Columbia University (19th), Princeton University (20th) and Cornell University (21st).
