Ten SUNY campuses’ graduate programs are named among the nation’s top graduate programs for 2014, according to U.S. World and News Report. The rankings, released in March, highlight over 75 tracks at the ten campuses in each subject’s top 100; many other SUNY schools are recognized in the full report.
According to U.S. News, the rankings are based on two types of data: expert opinions about program excellence and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research and students. The data come from surveys of administrators at more than 1,250 programs and more than 13,000 academics and professionals conducted during the fall of 2012 and early 2013.
“We are thrilled to see SUNY colleges and universities once again ranked among the best in the country by U.S. News & World Report,” said State University of New York Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher. “The SUNY campuses to make the 2014 Best Graduate Schools list are consistently recognized for the top quality and top value that they offer students, and rightly so. Congratulations to our many campuses and their respective presidents and educators on this much deserved recognition.”

The emerald ash borer is an insect that threatens all species of ash tree in Western New York
New York’s native ecosystem is under attack. Invasive species such as zebra mussels, round gobies, and water chestnuts threaten our waterways; garlic mustard and Japanese knotweed threaten our beautiful native flora; and even our beautiful ash trees are in danger from the emerald ash borer.
The Great Lakes Center at SUNY Buffalo State received a five-year $1.1 million grant from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation to establish a Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management (PRISM) office in Western New York. The office will establish a surveillance network, perform training, arrange workshops, and develop a volunteer team for monitoring invasive species. It will also coordinate activities of existing environmental groups that are addressing invasive species and the ensuing damage.
The State University of New York will again co-sponsor the Annual New York State Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Observance on Monday, Jan. 21, beginning at 10 a.m. at the Empire State Plaza Convention Center in Albany, N.Y.
“SUNY is proud to sponsor and participate in New York’s annual observance of Martin Luther King Jr. – an insightful leader who has inspired generations to reach their potential,” said SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher.
As a co-sponsor of the event, SUNY will help provide technical support for the live satellite broadcast that allows millions of citizens throughout New York and neighboring states to view the observance. SUNY will have a recruitment booth at the event, and the Buffalo State College Symphonic Choir, under the direction of Dr. Victoria Furby, will perform.
Beginning Monday, November 26, SUNY will be pinning stories of giving, service, and kindness originating from each of our 64 campuses and the communities that these schools are a part of.
With over 467,000 students, SUNY consistently takes advantage of the opportunity it has to be a significant impact in communities across New York State. The 30 Days of Giving campaign is a great way to recognize students and community partners involved in the many projects that happen all year round at each SUNY campus and their surrounding communities. The byproduct of taking volunteerism to scale is not only building character in our students themselves as they join our over three million alumni, but also to set an example of impact as the nation’s largest university system.
