-Paul Glastris, Washington Monthly editor-in-chief

Washington Monthly ranks UC Santa Barbara #9 among public universities and #19 in the magazine’s “Best Bang for the Buck” rankings in the Western Schools category.

UC Santa Barbara is among the institutions that are doing the best job of helping students attain marketable degrees at affordable prices,” said Paul Glastris, Washington Monthly editor-in-chief.

U.S. News & World Report ranked UC Santa Barbara #5 in its 2019 listing of the “Top 30 Public National Universities.” Also among public universities, UCSB placed #14 on the “Best Ethnic Diversity” ranking.

UCSB has once again placed among the top 10 in the Leiden ranking of 750 major universities worldwide.
