What are other schools doing?

tulsum03_rankAs anyone in academia knows, anything as large, complex and dynamic as intercollegiate athletics can be simplified by a crossreferenced, quantified and alphabetized table. The following list of institutions reflects membership in the prestigious Association of American Universities.*

Each AAU school is listed with its NCAA division, conference affiliation and current U.S. News & World Report ranking, which rates academic quality.

You probably wont find any startling trends but may be interested in how Tulanes fellow AAU institutions approach intercollegiate athletics.
