Addressing the fall general meeting of the faculty Wednesday during
his third annual State of the University address, Barron noted with
pride that FSU had been able to present a balanced budget this school
year for the first time since 2006-2007. The university also was able to
hire 21 more faculty than it lost, he said, reversing a brain drain
trend that he considers crucial to FSU's future.


He
likewise pointed to the latest national rankings, which saw FSU climb
four slots to No. 42 among public universities, while it dropped eight
places to 212 for funding of institutions.

I am liking this:

"Barron praised Florida State's outstanding students who boast an
incoming GPA of a just under 4.0, as well as myriad opportunities for
students, such as in the "Big 8" areas of STEM ? physics, chemistry,
biology, mathematics, computer science, engineering, environmental
science and psychology.

"Florida State is the top in the state in external support in four of
these areas," Barron said. "We are Florida's STEM university."


Barron also claimed that no other Florida university can best Florida
State in the arts or in the number of doctoral degrees awarded."


Nice work.  I am glad to see the pride and competitive edge.

How is Barron counting PhDs?

FSU moved ahead of UF in PhD production according to Barron.  How was this done?  The best data I can find has FSU granting 444 and UF 774 in the most recent periods available.
