University dean might go to jail for reporting fraudulent data to rankings organizations

A jury in Pennsylvania found a former dean of the Temple University School of Business in Philadelphia guilty of fraud related to falsifying information for the US News & World Report Best Colleges. What Moshe Porat did, according to the Justice Department, was “conspired and schemed to deceive the school’s applicants, students, and donors into believing that the school offered top-ranked business degree programs, so that they would pay tuition and make donations to Temple.” The maximum penalty for Porat is 25 years in prison and up to $500,000 in fines.
