School of Education programs ranked among best nationally

Two academic programs at the School of Education have been ranked in the top four spots in an annual report by Academic Analytics, which analyzes objective academic data on faculty productivity within universities.

The Teaching and Learning program has been ranked No. 2 in the country under the Curriculum and Instruction category, while Counseling Psychology is No. 5 in the country, the first time it has been ranked.

“This is wonderful news for our school and the University at large,” said School of Education Dean Isaac Prilleltensky. “It focuses on our faculty’s achievements and highlights that it is among the most productive in generating significant work and ideas that are then translated into the classroom and community.”

Academic Analytics (AA) began ranking scholarly productivity at all of the nation’s universities three years ago as a means to demonstrate the quality of their academic efforts. Using a proprietary formula, AA looks at various indicators of productivity, including the number of articles in peer-reviewed journals per faculty member, the number of published books per faculty member, external funding, and the number of times a faculty member’s work has been cited by peers.
