San Diego State University has been named the No. 1 small research university in the nation, according to a new ranking index based on the 2005 Faculty Scholarly Productivity Index (FSP Index).
The FSP Index, created by Academic Analytics, ranks universities based on the productivity of their faculty, including their publications, citations and financial and honorary awards won. Programs, not individual faculty, are rated and are aggregated to produce quantitative rankings of whole universities. The official ranking report was released this week.
Scholarly Productivity and Research
“This distinction reflects the solid work being done by faculty and staff at this premiere urban research university,” said SDSU President Stephen L. Weber. “Scholarly productivity and research are expressions of our faculty’s diligence to provide a learning environment that serves both our students and our community.”
“Small research university” refers to universities which offer 14 or fewer Ph.D. programs. In 2005, the year from which the rankings are based, SDSU had a total of 10 Ph.D. programs offered jointly with University of California, San Diego; University of California, Santa Barbara; and Claremont Graduate University.
