SUNY Morrisville has been recognized again for its excellence with numerous listings in the 2024 U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges rankings, including a jump as a Top Performer on Social Mobility    

The annual report ranks colleges and universities nationwide according to their performance on diverse measures of academic quality. Regional universities and regional colleges are divided and ranked in four geographical groups: North, South, Midwest and West. 

SUNY Morrisville climbed six spots, coming in at No. 25, for Top Performers on Social Mobility, a designation which measures and ranks a college’s success in graduating students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. The college also is ranked No. 26 for Best Regional Colleges North, up three notches from last year and is ranked in the top 15 for Top Public Schools Regional Colleges North. 

“We are proud of our ongoing recognition as a top-ranked regional college,” said SUNY Morrisville President David Rogers. “Our distinctive approach to experiential learning, along with full-semester internship requirements, offer graduates a cutting-edge and market-ready education. Our faculty, staff and students are driven by the search for excellence rather than accolades in rankings, but it is still an honor to see our hard work recognized in these results.”

“While any system of rankings doesn't convey everything that is important to know, we are proud to see our SUNY campuses receive recognition for what they do for our students every day—provide an excellent education at a great value and serve as engines of social mobility,” SUNY Chancellor John B. King, Jr. said in a news release. “Our campuses are constantly evolving their programs to meet the needs of current and future students, so students graduate with an excellent education and prepared to succeed in their careers. Congratulations to each and every SUNY college and university recognized in this ranking and other best college listings this year.”
