Another undergraduate institution has dropped out of the undergraduate rankings of U.S. News & World Report.
Bard College president Leon Botstein announced the change. “The educational character and comparative merits of colleges cannot be distilled into a uniform numerical ranking,” said Botstein. “Particularly one that does not take into account the curriculum and faculty and is based on flawed and irrelevant metrics, many of which concern only institutional wealth.”
Bard’s move follows similar announcements from Colorado College, the Rhode Island School of Design and numerous law and medical schools.
