NRC Rankings: Not in 2009

December 7, 2009

At the 2008 annual meeting of the Council of Graduate Schools, a presentation on the evaluation of doctoral programs by the National Research Council featured some jokes about the delays in the project, with the expectation that by the time the 2009 meeting came around, the rankings would be out. The 2009 meeting came and went last week -- and while the council released its methodology in July, the rankings themselves still have not been released. Charlotte Kuh, who is overseeing the project for the NRC, said via e-mail that "the report and its database are about to go into review," but she acknowledged that nothing would be forthcoming in 2009. Beyond saying that she did expect release sometime in 2010, she said that "we have decided not to announce a publication timeline until we can be quite certain about it."
