After Temple Admitted That Its Business School Misreported Data To Goose Its Ranking, U.S. News Demands Certification Of Other Schools' Data (Including Law School)
Following up on Tuesday's post, Temple Business School Dean Fired For Knowingly Submitting False Data To Inflate U.S. News Ranking Over Several Years: U.S. News has sent a letter to Temple asking it to certify the accuracy of data submitted by its other schools and programs (including the law school) because "the scope and duration of the misreporting at Fox calls into question all of Temple University’s submissions to U.S. News."
In addition, Inside Higher Education reports that Temple business school's two accreditors (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business and Middle States Commission on Higher Education) are actively investigating the school's compliance with accreditation standards.
