Brockport Jumps 10 Spots in US News Rankings

College climbs to 57th in the northern region, earns its highest-ever ranking

BROCKPORT, N.Y.—The College at Brockport, State University of New York, is continuing its upward trajectory in the annual US News & World Report’s, “America’s Best Colleges” guide. Brockport is ranked 57th among master’s universities in the Northern region—its highest ranking ever—in the magazine’s soon-to-be-released 2012 edition. Brockport was ranked No. 67 last year.

“Our continuing rise in the US News & World Report’s rankings is a reflection of The College at Brockport’s commitment to student success and academic excellence,” says Brockport President John R. Halstead, PhD. “While rankings are gratifying, the successes we see our students achieving on a daily basis are our greatest reward.”

Brockport earned its first ranking (79) in the 2007 edition.

The rankings are tabulated based on an array of criteria, including graduation rates, percentage of alumni who donate to their alma maters, the school’s reputation among peers and the academic profile of incoming students. Brockport’s current first-year class had a mean high school grade-point average of 90.4, a mean SAT score of 1106 and a mean ACT score of 24.

The complete rankings are available online and in the October issue of US News & World Report, which hits newsstands Sept. 20.
