Stony Brook University Receives National Recognition for Diversity



U.S. News & World Report Cites Engineering, Ethnic Diversity and Least Debt for Grads

STONY BROOK, N.Y., August 24, 2009—Stony Brook University ranks among the top 100 national universities in America and among the top 50 public national universities in the country in the annual U.S. News & World Report survey. The survey marks the eighth time in five years that Stony Brook has received either worldwide or national recognition in such a poll.

The University is ranked tied for 96th in the U.S. News rating of “best national universities,” which the magazine defines as universities that “offer a wide range of undergraduate majors as well as master’s and doctoral degrees, many strongly emphasize research.” Stony Brook is tied for 43rd in the category of top public national universities.

Stony Brook is the only university or college on Long Island that made the list of the Top 100. The survey, which appears in the current edition of U.S. News, is based on 15 indicators of academic quality gathered from each institution.

Stony Brook’s Engineering program was also selected as one of the nation’s best, ranking in a tie for 64th for universities whose highest degree offered is a doctorate.

The University is ranking in a tie for 38th in both ethnic diversity and for the largest population of International students. Stony Brook is ranking in a tie for 53rd for students graduating with the least amount of debt.

In 2008, Stony Brook was cited in the world in the Times Higher Education Supplement as the 127th best university in the world; top 50 in North America; and ranked among the top 200 universities in the world by the Institute for Higher Education in Shanghai.

Part of the State University of New York system, Stony Brook University encompasses 198 buildings on 1,454 acres. In the 51 years since its founding, the University has grown tremendously, now with nearly 24,000 students and 2,100 faculty, and is recognized as one of the nation’s important centers of learning and scholarship. It is a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities. Considered one of the “flagship” campuses in the SUNY system, Stony Brook University is a driving force of the Long Island economy, with an annual economic impact of $4.65 billion, generating nearly 60,000 jobs. Stony Brook accounts for nearly 4% of all economic activity in Nassau and Suffolk counties, and roughly 7.5 percent of total jobs in Suffolk County.
