BeyondspotStony Brook University is showcased as a university that “helps low-income kids move into the middle class and beyond” in an op-ed published September 20 in Marketwatch.

“There’s something special going on at SUNY Stony Brook,” says John Friedman, co-author of a study identifying the U.S. colleges and universities that best promote upward mobility, who is quoted in the article.

“Over the past five years, Stony Brook has improved graduation rates across the board,” writes op-ed author Howard Gold. “It has a high-tech, data-driven focus on student performance and a high-touch, advisor-heavy outreach program to make sure kids stay on track.”
