The university's S&P's credit ranking increased from BBB+ in 2011 to A- in 2017.
A complete turnaround is happening at Stevens.
Since President Nariman Farvardin's installation as seventh President of Stevens Institution of Technology in 2011, the university has accelerated into the national spotlight as a technology education leader. Through a comprehensive strategy resulting in growth in both size and impact during a remarkably short period of time, Stevens has rapidly and successfully ascended to the elite ranks of higher learning.
Demand for a Stevens education has never been higher.
Stevens' applications and enrollment have each increased significantly over the past six years, as have incoming students’ academic credentials – without compromising selectivity.
Student outcomes have soared to among the highest in the nation. Stevens graduates earn starting and mid-career salaries topping those of nearly all other U.S. universities. It's no surprise top employers now return to campus year after year, recruiting the unique skillsets of our new graduates – confident those graduates will hit the ground running, prepared to enter today's technology-rich workplace.
Our time is now.
We're receiving widespread acclaim for our unique blend of hands-on, project-based learning and our STEM classroom curriculum; for a lecture series featuring national thought leaders; and for research in nuclear safety, traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer's disease detection, climate-change and other key areas.
Stevens also appears regularly in the pages of The Washington Post and the New Yorker, on NBC, CNN and The Weather Channel, as well as in hundreds of additional publications and media outlets. In addition:
- We have received recognition from The Carnegie Corporation of New York, U.S News & World Report (second fastest rising university among the top 100 National Universities) and PayScale (top 10 ROI in the nation)
- We have developed exciting new research partnerships with MIT, Duke, Columbia and Accenture, among others
- We are experiencing record philanthropy and breaking ground on a modern campus expansion under the steady leadership of President Farvardin
