A recent US News & World Report ranked several local colleges in their annual report. The University of Rochester was ranked 33rd in the National University category, the Rochester Institute of Technology was ranked 7th and The State University of New York at Geneseo ranked 10th , Nazareth College ranked 33rd and Roberts Wesleyan College ranked 47th in the Regional University North Category.
Joe Robach was proud to see so many of the local higher education institutes on the 2012 list. “The US News & World Report that ranked several of our local higher education institutions is a true testament to how vital our colleges to the upstate community. Not only did the list rank our private institutions, but our SUNY intuitions as well. Throughout my tenure in the Legislature, I have worked hard to promote the affordability and accessibility of our state’s higher education institutions – both public and private. As a member of the Senate Higher Education Committee, and an alum of the SUNY system, my commitment to making higher education a priority remains strong,” said Joe Robach.
Joe Robach and his colleagues in state government have worked hard to make SUNY campuses the leading drivers of economic growth in communities across the state. Also, the ranking of local private higher education institutes shows that the investment of state dollars to these institutions is making a significant difference.
