Why should we even talk about the U.S. News & World Report higher education rankings? Everybody hates them. Nobody that I know thinks they’ve done anything good for students, professors or schools. The answer is that I just can’t help myself. Wishing that the U.S. News college rankings would cease to exist will do nothing to mitigate their pernicious influence on our industry. We need to engage with this thing head-on. Still, I’m going to try to pick my battles. Rather than simply adding one more voice to the chorus of criticism about the validity of the overall U.S. News rankings, I’m going to focus on just one of the lists that that they publish. This is the Best Undergraduate Teaching rankings, which U.S. News publishes for both national universities and national liberal arts colleges. Josh Kim provides an alternative input-based methodology for the U.S. News & World Report best undergraduate teaching ranking.‘us-news’-best-undergraduate-teaching-survey
