Brockport Jumps to No. 54 in 2013 US News Rankings

College achieves its highest-ever ranking in the publication

BROCKPORT, N.Y.—The College at Brockport, State University of New York, has jumped 14 spots in the annual US News & World Report’s, “America’s Best Colleges” guide. Brockport is ranked 54th, the highest ranking it has ever achieved, in the Best Regional Universities-North category of the magazine’s soon-to-be-released rankings. The College also was ranked No. 11 among public universities in the northern region.

“It is an honor that our students, faculty, staff, and alumni have again been recognized for their achievements by US News & World Report,” says Brockport President John R. Halstead. “This type of recognition tells the nation what we already know—that the entire Brockport community is completely committed to ensuring the success of our students and our graduates.”

Brockport earned its first ranking 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.

“As we continue to work with Governor Cuomo to position SUNY and New York to lead in affordability, access, and quality, and President Obama puts these issues into focus nationally, we are proud to be recognized and ranked favorably by US News & World Report,” says SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher, PhD. “Congratulations to Brockport and the many campuses representing SUNY on this list.”
