rankings of academic programs in the US. The factors taken into
account by the NRC were faculty reputation, research productivity, and
quality of the graduate program. The UW-Madison Mathematics
Department has performed very strongly in this exercise. We
the 7-16th place bracket among all National Universities. This ranking is
a reflection of the strength of the Wisconsin mathematics tradition,
which continues to attract talented faculty and graduate students.
The UW Mathematics Department also ranked 12th
among all Mathematics Departments around
the world in the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU).
