Stony Brook has been ranked No. 25 among public universities  in the prestigious Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education U.S. College Rankings for 2020, representing an increase of five places over last year. The university is ranked No. 105 overall, jumping 30 places from the previous ranking.

The higher rankings are due to particularly strong showings in the areas of campus environment and student outcomes and reflect a significant increase in reputation.

I'm furious about the US News ranking. We dropped 11 spots from last year. Why?? I also notice that several private schools that used to be regional are now National Universities and are up on the list now. Gonzaga, Gallaudet, Hampton, etc. I think maybe they changed how they evaluated public vs private and gave more private schools an edge? Seems like it.

Stony Brook Offers Path to American Dream, Marketwatch Says
https://news.stonybrook.edu/university/stony-brook-offers-path-to-american-dream-marketwatch-says/

Quote
Stony Brook University is showcased as a university that “helps low-income kids move into the middle class and beyond” in an op-ed published September 20 in Marketwatch.

“There’s something special going on at SUNY Stony Brook,” says John Friedman, co-author of a study identifying the U.S. colleges and universities that best promote upward mobility, who is quoted in the article.

“Over the past five years, Stony Brook has improved graduation rates across the board,” writes op-ed author Howard Gold. “It has a high-tech, data-driven focus on student performance and a high-touch, advisor-heavy outreach program to make sure kids stay on track.”


Opinion: These 10 solid U.S. colleges prove you don’t need Harvard or Yale to achieve the American Dream

State and local public universities help low-income kids move into the middle class and beyond

The researchers found that highly selective colleges and universities such as Berkeley, Columbia, MIT, Stanford, and Swarthmore (which I attended as a first-generation college student) actually do a very good job of elevating lower-income kids to the middle-class and beyond. But they take so few kids from the bottom 20% — less than 4% of enrollment — they can’t move the needle much.

Good state and local universities, however, can and do. That’s why they dominate the list of the 10 colleges that are most effective in helping their graduates move from the lowest 20% (family incomes below $25,000 a year) to the top 20% ($110,000 and above). That’s the stuff of Horatio Alger stories, yet it happens all the time at these American Dream machines.

Only Stony Brook University (of the State University of New York) cracks U.S. News & World Report’s top 100 national universities rankings for 2020.

The authors contrasted Stony Brook, on eastern Long Island, with Columbia, the Manhattan-based Ivy League university founded in 1754. Not surprisingly, lower-income students who attended Columbia, where they hobnob with the sons and daughters of the American oligarchy, had seven times the likelihood of climbing to the top 1% of the economic ladder as kids who attended Stony Brook. But Stony Brook offered many, many more students access to the middle- and upper-middle class than Columbia.

“There's something special going on at SUNY Stony Brook, and we don't quite know yet what that is,” Friedman said.

So, I called Stony Brook to find out. Over the past five years, Stony Brook has improved graduation rates across the board. It has a high-tech, data-driven focus on student performance and a high-touch, advisor-heavy outreach program to make sure kids stay on track.

Stony Brook is selective, with a 40%+ acceptance rate, and draws almost 10% of its students from New York City’s fabled specialized high schools. Its $10,000 a year in-state tuition, especially when combined with grants and aid, looks dirt cheap compared with Columbia’s $55,000 tuition (though elite colleges provide generous financial aid).

Good things are happening — at Stony Brook and elsewhere, even as states have cut $9 billion from public universities over the last decade. Stony Brook’s budget, for example, remains below where it was before the Great Recession.

(40%) and environment (10%).

Stony Brook Makes Money’s Top 50 Best Value Colleges
Stony Brook University placed #47 in Money’s Best Colleges for Your Money 2019. This
ranking focuses on data that highlight quality and affordability. Money’s analysis highlights the

Whittingham awarded Nobel Prize in Chemistry

The Department of Chemistry is thrilled to learn that Stan Whittingham is among the three battery scientists to receive this year’s Nobel Prize for their pivotal work in the development of the lithium ion battery.
As a former Stony Brook research professor and founding co-director of the Northeastern Center for Chemical Energy Storage at Stony Brook, Stan provided inspiration to our graduate and postdoctoral students who benefited from his revolutionary work. He has been a tremendous mentor to many of our students and faculty alike.

I read the article. They are #45 because of international ethnicity.  Say it ain't so. My son is an honor student at SCCC is is looking to finish his undergraduate degree either at SB or Binghamton.  I told him go with Binghamton for his business degree. He wont fit well with 45% of asians in his class rooms at Stony Brook
