Based on factual data from CHED and PRC the bests universities in the Visayas as the Centers of Excellence and Development, as well passing percentages of graduates in board exams area as follows :

* University of San Carlos (Cebu City)
* Silliman University (Dumaguete City)
* University of the Philippines Visayas (Iloilo City)

These universities have been ranked among the top 20 at the national level. They are recognized not only for their quality of instruction, track record of academic excellence but more importantly their Researches and Publications both in the Phils. and international journals.

These universities have high number of Faculties with PhDs and MS degrees in various disciplines and their alumni have exhibited leadership in national and international arena of science, technology, commerce & trade, public service, arts & culture.

comparatively, USJR is also recognized by CHED as center of excellence in teacher's education; and as center of development in 3 programs namely; accountancy, information technology and industrial engineering.
Based on PRC records of performance of schools in board exams, USJR has been among highest passing percentage in Accountancy.
It is also a PAASCU level 3 accredited university and autonomous status by CHED.
USJR has been perceived as most disciplined, orderly and deeply Catholic / Christian in Cebu, which reflects the university's administration under the OAR as a conservative religious order from Spain (adelante, viva madre espana).

While USC has more programs recognized as CHED's centers of excellence they have 3 namely; chemistry; science teaching, sociology & anthropology; and 10 centers of development which are; chemical, civil, computer, mechanical, electrical, electronics & industrial engineering programs; biology & marine biology; physics; business administration;
Among the charter and founding members of PAASCU, one of the first accredited universities since 1970's.
One of the oldest school in the Phils. & Asia founded in 1595 the Jesuits, the premier Catholic congregation worldwide but closed due to explosion of the Jesuits by spanish authorities in Manila. the SVD missionaries from Germany & Netherlands took over and eventually made USC a university in 1948. The pioneering SVD missionaries were scientists with PhDs from best universities in Europe & US who were actively doing scientific research, teaching, community development in mainland China before the communist regime. They were expelled by Chinese communist govt. which resulted their relocation to the Phils. mainly in Cebu to administer the then Colegio de San Carlos through the request of the then Cebu Archbishop Gorordo. The strong tradition of academic excellence and research of USC was built, nurtured and handed down by the SVD missionaries/ scientist. The SVD is a progressive, relatively modern Catholic religious order which promote academic freedom and liberal education in the management of the university. Carolinians have the opportunity to free expression & exchange of ideas, independent thinking, innovation, creativity, with due respect to law and order, as well Christian tenets, resulting to a sophisticated and metropolitan Carolinian community.

Tbh.. way back a years ago.. or let's say last 'decade'... USJR is the best in cebu.. while the years goes by, the school starts to deteriorate its competitiveness in which only few tops every board exams compared to USC. Mga karon na years.. 2012-2015 then on.. kay mas better na ang USC
