“The rankings confirm our stature as a national leader in teacher preparation and an institution committed to supporting faculty research,” said Dominic Brewer, Gale and Ira Drukier Dean at NYU Steinhardt.
He noted that the largest contributor to Steinhardt’s ranking is a more than ten percent increase to almost $56 million in externally-supported education-related research expenditures.
Founded in 1890 as NYU’s School of Pedagogy, NYU Steinhart was the first graduate school of education at an American university. It is one of the highest ranked schools within NYU.
The U.S. News & World Report rankings are based on data gathered from the 2019-2020 academic year and take into account GRE scores, resources, and the school’s public reputation.
