SU slips several spots in the 'U.S. News & World Report' university rankings over the years, prompting response from Chancellor Nancy Cantor.

Syracuse University ranked 62nd in the 2012 U.S. News & World Report National University Rankings, published Tuesday. This is a seven-spot drop from 55th in the World Report's 2011 rankings.
