SUNY Interim Chancellor Congratulates SUNY Campuses On Latest U.S. News & World Report Rankings

September 14, 2022

"SUNY consistently delivers on its mission to provide a high-quality affordable education at its campuses across New York, and our efforts have once again been recognized in the U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges rankings. While lists cannot adequately capture the full experience of a college or university, they do help inform future students about the possibilities before them and provide welcome recognition of the many people who make those opportunities possible."

"SUNY campuses that are educating the next generation of healthcare heroes, leaders, engineers, and acclaimed artists are celebrated in this year's listing. I heartily applaud those included – and all our campuses – for the work they do."

"I am proud of our talented, experienced, and caring faculty who inspire and challenge our students each day. They are researchers, performers, and innovators who lead by example. And, I thank every member of our campus community who contribute to making the SUNY experience second to none."
