Top Universities in the US and Canada Under 50 Years Old

Universities in the US and Canada include many of the world’s best-known and most prestigious institutions. Many have built up strong reputations over the past two centuries, but some have climbed into the international rankings tables impressively quickly.

From the Ivy Leaguers to equally prestigious public universities, more than 140 US institutions are included among the world’s best in the 2013/14 QS World University Rankings®, joined by 26 Canadian entries. Of these, just three US universities and two Canadian institutions feature in the latest edition of the QS Top 50 Under 50, which highlights the world’s highest ranking universities established within the last 50 years.

The relatively low number of universities in the US and Canada included in the Top 50 Under 50 in part reflects the prevalence of longer established institutions in these countries compared to nations with more youthful higher education systems.Top Universities in the US and Canada Under 50 However, the ranking also proves that even in the US and Canada, younger universities are taking root and achieving the strong reputation and research production needed to rank on the global level.

Gay-friendly employers in America?


Are there any employers or areas of work which are known to be LGBT-friendly in the US and Canada?
One reason I went for a job in the National Health Service is because it has a good reputation for having a large number of out LGBT workers and for being supportive to them. One of the main unions in our hospitals is a big supporter of LGBT rights. So I was quite saddened to read the report below but know one co-worker myself who speaks quite sarcastically to gay male staff at our hospital.
