Geneseo Ranks Highly in U.S. News Efficiency Report

GENESEO, N.Y. – U.S. News & World Report has placed SUNY Geneseo second among universities in the country’s north region for providing a high quality education while spending relatively less than its peers to achieve it.

This is the second year U.S. News has published its operating efficiency rankings, generated by dividing a school's 2012 fiscal year financial resources per student by its overall score in the 2014 best colleges rankings. Geneseo ranked 15th in the north region in the latest general rankings and 136th in financial resources per student, yielding $240.36 in spending per student for each point in the U.S. News overall scores. U.S. News factors in spending per student on instruction, research, student services and related educational expenditures to determine financial resources.

“Schools featured on this list are doing a good job in managing their financial resources relative to other schools that may have larger state funding, higher tuition or larger endowments,” writes Robert Morse, director of data research for U.S. News & World Report. “The less a school is spending relative to its ranking, the more efficient it is in producing a quality education among its peers.”

The only schools included in producing the new efficiency list were those in the top half of their ranking category in the 2014 best colleges rankings. The U.S. News best colleges rankings are among the most closely followed in the world.
