GW Presidents Knapp and Trachtenberg, Current and Former, on U.S. News ‘de-ranking’

November 15, 2012

Here are the takeaways from my telephone conversations Wednesday with two George Washington University presidents, past and current, after U.S. News & World Report designated the school as “unranked.” Steven Knapp, GWU president since 2007, says he still can’t put a date on the beginning of the admissions data-reporting problem that led to the surprising U.S. News action. Stephen Joel Trachtenberg, GWU president from 1988 to 2007 and a professor there now, called the U.S. Newsaction a “mean-spirited” response to a “blunder” on the part of the university.
