UCSC grad programs ranked third nationally in
faculty research productivity
In a comparative study, the Faculty Scholarly Productivity Index
ranked UCSC doctoral programs in music and in environmental health
engineering third in the nation in scholarly faculty productivity.
At UCSC, environmental health engineering research takes place
primarily in the Environmental Toxicology Department.
The Faculty Scholarly Productivity Index, partly financed by
the State University of New York at Stony Brook and produced by
Academic Analytics, rated faculty members' scholarly output at
nearly 7,300 doctoral programs. The index, based on 2005 data,
judged productivity on publications, including citations;
federal-grant dollars awarded; and awards and honors. The rankings
were reported in the January 12 issue of the Chronicle of Higher Education.
