Northwestern University moved up while the University of Chicago slipped in a new ranking of the world’s top universities.
The University of Chicago fell from 9th to 10th place while Northwestern moved up from 26th to 19th.
The rankings were published by the British-based publication Times Higher Education.
More broadly the rankings show sharp increases in rankings for schools in the Asia-Pacivic region, which the publication credits to increasing financial support for universities in China, Taiwan, Souh Korea and Singapore.
And the report notes a general decline for many schools in the United States.
