The National Research Council released its evaluation of doctoral programs on September 28, 2010. Among 141 graduate programs in geosciences, ours ranked at the 18th in the survey-based and the 22nd in the regression-based rankings, respectively (or top 15 on a percentile basis.) This progress is particularly significant in that it is achieved in spite of dwindling support from the State.
