Chancellor Nancy Zimpher was onstage today in a live webcast, presenting SUNY's new report card - for itself.
The document is called the "Power of SUNY Report Card."
It "grades" the State University of New York on 90 measures that include graduation rates, diversity of enrolled students and jobs created by on-campus sponsored research.
SUNY plans to measure itself against these numbers in years to come to see if its impact on New York state is making the grade. The main metrics: creating more jobs, establishing more partnerships and reaching more students.
SUNY is trying to reach those goals in spite of state budget cuts that have reduced state aid by 30 percent since the start of the recession.
