Maclean's releases 2011 University Rankings issue

October 26, 2011

The 21st annual Maclean's University Rankings issue hits newsstands today. For the seventh consecutive year, McGill University took the top spot in the medical-doctoral category. Simon Fraser University placed first in the comprehensive category for the fourth year in a row. Brock, Wilfrid Laurier, and Ryerson Universities all make their debut in the comprehensive category; they were moved from the primarily undergraduate category this year in recognition of both the number of their graduate offerings and the size of their student body. This year marks the fifteenth time Mount Allison University has taken the number-one spot in the primarily undergraduate category. The magazine ranks universities on performance measures in 6 broad areas: student/classes, faculty, resources, student support, library, and reputation.
