We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Compiled annually and published online since 2003, the Academic Ranking of World Universities is thought to be one of the foremost lists of its kind. (Read about their methodology .) They have released their 2010 rankings , and Los Angeles' own UCLA earned a respectable Number 13 slot.

Number one is Harvard, followed by another UC, Berkeley. Other UC campuses fared well in the top 50: San Diego (14), San Francisco (18), Santa Barbara (32), and Irvine and Davis (tied at 46).

Who else tied at number 46? Los Angeles' other world-renowned institution of higher education, the University of Southern California. Alas, Trojans, the Bruins bested you in this one.
