SUNY Geneseo has again made the U.S. News & World Report’s list of "Best Regional Universities in the North," ranking 14th overall in the category, which comprises 179 public and private institutions in the Best Colleges 2020 guidebook.

The College also ranked third in the “Top Public Schools” category for our region. Geneseo is one of only three public colleges in the top 15 schools in the category. The College was ranked second in the regional "Best Undergraduate Teaching" category. U.S. News selects the “Best Undergraduate Teaching” colleges through data collected from college presidents, provosts, and admissions deans at peer institutions within their region who identified schools where the faculty demonstrated an unusually strong commitment to undergraduate teaching.

“SUNY continues to garner national recognition as an exceptional institution of higher education that successfully prepares our students to thrive in today’s complex society,” said SUNY Chancellor Kristina Johnson. “As the latest rankings from U.S. News and World Report demonstrate, SUNY has secured a reputation for delivering quality academics and research excellence, in a way that is affordable and accessible to all. These rankings serve to reinforce our commitment to delivering an individualized education experience for all students, regardless of their background and circumstances.”

This year’s U.S. News rankings are available online and will be published in the 2020 edition of the Best Colleges guidebook.
