Times Higher Education has named all of SUNY’s university centers—University at Albany, Binghamton University, University at Buffalo, and Stony Brook University—as four of the world’s top 400 universities.
University at Buffalo and Stony Brook are ranked top 200 with UAlbany and Binghamton stacking up close behind in the 2012-13 Times Higher Education World University Rankings. According to Times Higher Education, the criteria used to determine rankings are the only global university performance tables to judge world class universities across all of their core missions—13 performance indicators stemming from teaching to research, knowledge transfer to international outlook.
“The Power of SUNY resonates worldwide,” said SUNY Chancellor Zimpher, “and this prominent international ranking of our four university centers by Times Higher Education serves as the most recent showcase of the outstanding work and remarkable impact that SUNY has on students and communities throughout New York State and across the globe.”
These most recent rankings are familiar as ranking institutions continue to prove and support the quality education that SUNY institutions offer. In September, SUNY Campuses Ranked Among Best Colleges in the North by U.S. News & World Report and in August, there were 3 SUNY Mentions in Fiske’s Top 20 Best Buy Public Schools.
The SUNY 2020 Plan that Chancellor Zimpher introduced two years ago has already proven positive change for the system and will continue to foster growth in its resources. SUNY continually invests in recruiting high-quality faculty, attracting researchers from around the world to join the largest higher education system in the world. With over 400,000 enrolled students and 64 campuses, SUNY is not only a vehicle for personal enrichment, but for statewide and national achievement as well.
Times Higher Education is a leading higher education magazine and the recognition of the SUNY university centers as top-400 universities demonstrates SUNY’s growing global reputation. The data for the rankings were collected by Thomson Reuters, which considered about 700 institutions in 69 countries.
