UC Riverside was recently named among the top 20 of universities established between 1945 and 1966 – the so-called “golden age” of university expansion — by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

UCR was listed as one of 10 U.S.-based campuses selected for the ranking, sharing the No. 19 spot with the U.K.’s University of East Anglia.

“The universities in the Times Higher Education ‘Golden Age’ ranking were established between 1945 and 1966,” wrote the Times.  “The ranking takes its name from what was a ‘Golden Age’ in global higher education, characterized by rapid university expansion and increasing investment in research.”

UCR opened classes to students in 1954; the Times noted that the universities featured in the ranking scored highly for teaching and research.
