Academic Rankings
« on: August 22, 2013, 02:22:47 pm »
I am always posting the periodic academic rankings, and while these are entirely flawed, its still nice to see SB on there in high regard.  This could be a nice neat little place to store them all, starting today:

#89- Center for World University Rankings: SB Ranked among the World's Top 100 University http://commcgi.cc.stonybrook.edu/am2/publish/General_University_News_2/Stony_Brook_Ranked_Among_the_World_s_Top_100_Universities_by_Center_for_World_University_Rankings.shtml
There are 29,413,039 corporations in America; but only one Chairman of the Board.

  These rankings can be  very subjective  but it is good to see we are viewed as one of the worlds best.

It's pretty great PR for Stony Brook to now say they're the top ranked SUNY according to the US News and World Report. That will only help Stony Brook's selectivity.

SB Athletic has a new look plus it now has a pay TV. Which plan works best to watch Football/ Basketball. I might E mail SB Athletics and let them know about that issue . Pretty cool though

The rankings are based on a formula that uses quantitative measures that education experts have proposed as reliable indicators of academic quality. It compares colleges based on a number of common quality indicators, such as retention, graduation rates, faculty strength and more.

  I think the school really should highlight their academic profile more  especially in the NY Metro Area. We are a steal financially .

This year we received almost 35,000 applications for 2,900 places — we are now the seventh most selective public university among our 62 American Association of Universities (AAU) peers.   

And thanks to Stony Brook’s return on investment, top-notch research facilities and star faculty, we continue to be recognized for our outstanding academic programs and affordability — including, most recently, as a “best- buy” school in Fiske Guide to Colleges 2017.

The heart of every campus is its library, and by the end of this summer we’ll have completed a multimillion-dollar renovation — supported in part by the Stony Brook Foundation — that will transform the Reading Rooms into “Knowledge Commons.” With technology improvements, modern furniture and creatively designed collaboration spaces, our library will be a haven for quiet study or group learning

Undergoing similar transformation is the outdated image of Stony Brook as a commuter school. With the addition of our new $168.6 million, 759-room Toll Drive residence halls with integrated dining facilities, we now have more than 10,300 oncampus beds, more than any in the entire SUNY system — a necessity given that our student population has swelled to a record 25,272.

As Long Island’s largest single-site employer, and with faculty who have 312 inventions and 580 U.S. patents to their name, Stony Brook provides full- or parttime jobs to more than 14,000 New Yorkers, with a direct economic impact of $4.65 billion. And this impact is felt across the region — Stony Brook is effectively responsible for generating 60,000 jobs, or 7.5 percent of the employment in Suffolk County.

To complement these efforts, funding is in place for two new buildings in our Research and Discovery Park: a $60 million, 200,000-square-foot Innovation and Discovery Center to act as a “mezzanine structure” to promote the growth of startup businesses and to allow Stony Brook incubator companies to step up to the next level, and a $75 million Institute for Discovery and Innovation in Medicine & Engineering (I-DIME). This institute will link Stony Brook’s strength in advanced data analytics with pioneering research to solve the vexing problems of today and of the future.   

We were also able to increase our four-year graduation rate to 51 percent, grow financial aid, add 19 new academic programs and reduce the faculty/student ratio from 28:1 to 17:1.

Most important, Stony Brook continued to maintain one of the lowest tuitions of the AAU — reflected in the fact that 40 percent of Stony Brook students graduate with no debt and the average debt of those who borrow is $2,500 below the national average.
