BU President, Doctor Harvey Stenger says Binghamton was first named an “R-1” school in 2018.  The classifications are updated every three years.

To get the designation, schools have to have at least five-million dollars in research expenditures that grant at least 20 doctorate degrees a year.  There are 148 schools on the latest list.
