The Times Higher Education Top 100 Under 50 rankings, are a global list of universities under the age of 50.

Vice-Chancellor and President of Griffith University, Professor Ian O’Connor said the ranking was endorsement of the strategic and ambitious path the university was following which focused on strengthening the quality of its teaching and research, particularly within a number of selected areas.

“Being ranked 84 in the THE 100 Under 50 rankings confirms Griffith’s international standing” he said.

“The world of higher education is truly global and we need to evolve to meet this new reality. We are committed to enhancing the international reputation of the University through both quality teaching and research excellence, and this ranking is proof that we are well on our way to achieving this.”

THE Editor-at-Large and Rankings Editor Phil Baty agreed.

“The academy’s traditional, ancient elite should be warned – many of the exciting young universities on this forward-looking list do not see their youth as a disadvantage in the global knowledge economy.

“While they may not have had centuries to accumulate wealth and cannot draw on generations of alumni and rich traditions of scholarship to drive their reputations, they are free from the burdens of history: free to be more agile, lean, flexible and risk-taking, giving them an advantage in a rapidly changing global marketplace; free to offer innovative teaching and focus their research on niche, high-impact areas.

“So, Griffith has joined a prestigious list of some truly exciting and dynamic institutions. To feature in such a list against such tough global competition is a great achievement,” Mr Baty said.
