SorSU marks a new historic milestone: Ranks Top 89 among 229 universities in the Philippines by EduRank — Top 1 among SUCs in the Bicol Region

In an outstanding milestone toward academic excellence and pursuit of becoming a leading research University with global standing, Sorsogon State University (SorSU) historically obtained a prestigious position, securing Top 89 among the 229 universities across the Philippines, conducted by EduRank, positioning itself as the top SUC in the Bicol Region — such a remarkable achievement places SorSU in the forefront of academic institutions on a national level, establishing itself as one of the premier universities in the country.

Remarkably, this is indeed a noteworthy achievement as SorSU is one of the only three academic institutions in the entire Bicol Region to accomplish this impressive feat, with Ateneo de Naga University as Rank 44 and Bicol University (BU) in 94th Place, — thus ranking Top 1 among the State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) in the region.

The ranking evaluation as of February 29, 2024, conducted by EduRank, is based on research outputs, non-academic prominence, and alumni influence. Moreover, the rankings are generated by analyzing 500K citations received by 58.8K academic publications produced by 229 universities in the Philippines, the popularity of 1,093 recognized alumni, and the largest reference database available (, 2024).
SorSU’s astounding rise to the Top 89 among 229 Philippine universities (and one of the only two SUCs in the Bicol Region to achieve this notable feat) exemplifies a testament to its steadfast commitment to providing high-quality education and cultivating a culture of excellence, underscoring the enduring commitment of SorSU administration under the leadership of SUC President III, Dr. Geraldine F. De Jesus, alongside SorSU top management, faculty members & non-teaching personnel, students, and the whole SorSU community to upholding the highest standards of education and underscoring its pivotal role not just in the regional and national academic landscape but as well as its relentless pursuit of premier global education.
