Three cheers for Cheryl J. Wachenheim.

Scott Jaschik on Gaye Tuchman's new book.
The examples in the book portray an administration much more concerned with making the university look outstanding than actually becoming outstanding. And measures that Tuchman writes are of dubious value (U.S. News & World Report rankings, for example) appear to count much more than the vibrancy of intellectual life or the student learning experience.
