Last month, the university admitted that they falsified their performance statistics between 2001 and 2011, which many publications relied on for their college rankings. Upon acknowledging that they misreported data, which ranged from overstating student test scores and class rankings as well as excluding some information on lower-ranking students, the school went on to conduct an "internal investigation of the discrepancies."
In a press release this morning, Provost Earl Lewis commented about the latest rankings:
An education at Emory University is the sum total of many distinguished components that are difficult to aggregate and rank in one numerical grade.
Whatever 'marks' we might be assigned by others, Emory by any measure is one of the world's leading centers of discovery and learning.
Emory University's mishap has tied them to the growing institutional trend of performance misrepresentation, recently including Claremont McKenna College, Iona College, Villanova University, and the University of Illinois. While some anticipated a drop in the rankings once the school provided accurate figures, today's report shows that they probably didn't need to fudge the numbers in the first place.
