Each college anxiously awaits the Top School Rankings which are published each year by several prestigious national magazines.  A lot of data is "crunched" to come up with these important rankings.  The State University of New York at Delhi not only did very well in the latest U.S. News and World Report "Best Colleges" ranking list, they actually improved their position over the last time the list was provided.

SUNY Delhi surpassed its previous standing in multiple categories in the 2020 Best Colleges rankings by the U.S. News & World Report, released September 9. The annual report ranks schools nationwide according to their performance on diverse measures of academic quality. These include graduation and retention rate, class sizes, faculty resources, financial resources, student excellence, and expert opinion.

With a distinct rise from last year, SUNY Delhi was ranked #15 in Best Regional Colleges and #13 in Best Value Schools in the North Region for 2020. SUNY Delhi was also ranked #9 in Top Public Schools and #7 in Best Colleges for Veterans in the North Region.

SUNY Delhi's strong commitment to high-quality undergraduate teaching was reflected in its #4 ranking on the list for Best Undergraduate Teaching. SUNY Delhi is the only SUNY institution to make this list.

New this year, U.S. News published a social mobility ranking for all schools, measuring how well schools graduated students who received Pell grants, which are typically awarded to students whose family income is less than $50,000 annually. SUNY Delhi ranked #20 in the North region.

"These rankings validate the daily efforts and commitment of our entire campus community to provide our students with a competitive education in an enriching, supportive environment," said SUNY Delhi President Michael Laliberte. "I'm extremely proud of our dedicated faculty and staff for making SUNY Delhi a place where student success is always a priority."

All of us at Townsquare Media wish to congratulate SUNY Delhi on their superb achievement!
