It is clear from those who go out to recruit talented students for their university that many prospective students consult global rankings. This increases the imperative to deal with this issue.

It is clear from those who go out to recruit talented students for their university that many prospective students consult global rankings. This increases the imperative to deal with this issue.

For this reason, Leiden University has taken a lead in Europe to address this issue and wants to continue the excellent dialogue that was started at the 1st Leiden University International Symposium on Ranking held in February 2006.

The second edition of this symposium wants to explore reactions to this phenomenon of international ranking. The symposium will review and update you on ranking systems.

Furthermore, it will explore views on ranking from a diversity of perspectives. Deliberations from the International Ranking Expert Group (IREG) will be explained, bibliometric studies will be considered, and the ways in which universities can deal with rankings in their international positioning will be explored.

Finally, several presidents from renowned universities that operate in different contexts will give their views on how to further develop their universities and to strive for excellence.

Given that ranking is here to stay results in the rising of the question how institutions are affected by this and, more importantly, what they can do to protect their international positioning to facilitate their quest for attracting talented students and staff.
