George Washington University announced on Wednesday that its dean of admissions would retire this month, after the institution admitted that it had inflated data on the class ranks of incoming students for more than a decade. The revelation prompted U.S. News & World Report to remove the university’s ranking on the magazine’s list of “Best Colleges.” The dean, Kathryn M. Napper, will retire at the end of this month, after 35 years at George Washington, reports The Washington Post. In a written statement cited by the newspaper, Forrest Maltzman, senior vice provost for academic affairs and planning, credited Ms. Napper with increasing the number of domestic and foreign applications. He praised her “long and admirable service to the institution.” The news was first reported by The GW Hatchet, a student newspaper.
