University of Arizona rankings slipping

Posted: Updated:

The University of Arizona was ranked 102 by the US News and World Report. This year it is a different story, they are down to 120.

The U of A does not consider the ranking to be a true measure of the quality of an institution. This may be true, but parents still consider the rankings in choosing a school. One parent interviewed says he considers  the rankings, but knows that the U of A is a good school.

The Goldwater Institute is also painting a picture of Arizona. According to them the University spends too much money on Administrative costs.

The report says that the number of instructors rose slightly, while the number of administrators increased by almost fifty percent.

The U of A does not consider the report to be accurate, because they have a different definition of administrator.
