SUNY Launches Redesigned “Fast Facts” Providing Further Transparency Through Statistical Data
December 20, 2016
Albany – The State University of New York today launched an enhanced online version of the “SUNY Fast Facts” to assist visitors in researching and retrieving data from across the university system.
Located at http://www.suny.edu/about/fast-facts/, the site invites visitors to access current and trend data on enrollment, student demographics, and graduation rates, among other variables commonly requested of and reported by its 64 colleges and universities. The redesigned version now includes breakdowns on student hometowns, veterans status, credentials awarded, and more.
In addition to viewing data points across SUNY, visitors can now search by campus, and in some cases, by New York State region. Data will be archived on the site for five years and updated every six months, in April and October. The SUNY Fast Facts are presented in conjunction with what’s available through data.ny.gov.
