said.
When the U.S. News and World
Report rankings were released
over the summer, University offi-
cials said they didn't feel the rank-
ings were overly important.
However, in an e-mail sent to
The Michigan Daily on Monday,
a senior communications offi-
cial at the University promoted
the University's ranking in the
Times Higher Education evalua-
tion, encouraging coverage of the
news.
"Times Higher Education new
world university rankings put the
University of Michigan at num-
ber 15 overall (!) and even higher
for public universities - number
3," the official wrote. "We know
there are a lot of rankings out
there, but this one has proven to
be respected around the world."
Inan interview yesterday, Uni-
versity spokesman Rick Fitzger-
aid said the e-mail was sent out to
promote the new ranking system
because of the global perspective
it provides, not because the Uni-
versity achieved a high rank.
"It was noted to (The Michi-
gan Daily) specifically because of
our emphasis on globalization,"
Fitzgerald said, referencing the
University's focus on globaliza-
tion, which it highlighted in a
self-study report given to the
agency that accredits the Univer-
sity earlier this year.
Asked what the ranking meant
for the University, Fitzgerald said
University officials are happy to
be ranked so favorably.
"It's nice to see that different
perspective," Fitzgerald said,
comparing the globally focused
rankings to those done domesti-
cally. "Of course, we're always
gratified to be recognized near
the top of those lists."
However, Fitzgerald said no
matter how high a school ranks,
a ranking shouldn't be the sole
reason for potential students to
choose which school they will
attend.
"Regardless of the rankings,
we still maintain that rankings

sure compliance with the policy
isn't too much of a burden.
"The SMTD (School of Music,
Theatre & Dance) is being respon-
sive to the situation by working on
a case-by-case basis this semes-
ter with students for whom this
requirement puts them above 18
credits to advise and support them
regarding ensemble participation,"
Kendall wrote.
Matt Griffith, the Men's Glee
Club major media manager, said
the Men's Glee Club has always
had the option to register for the

alone are not the way to pick a
university," Fitzgerald said. "No
matter how well a university does
in the rankings ... there is no single
number one school for everyone."
Asked whether University pffi-
cials viewed one survey as a more
accurate portrayal of quality in
higher education, Fitzgerald said
each ranking provides a different
but equally important perspec-
tive.
"We're not saying that one is
better than the other," Fitzgerald
said, adding that all rankings are
equally interesting. "They're sim-
ply different."
The difference between the
rankings released by different
organizations, Fitzgerald said,
demonstrates how different cri-
teria are used to determine the
quality of universities.
"It's important to look at
what's valued in these rankings,"
Fitzgerald said. "Often, criteria
are tweaked and adjusted over
the years."
Times Higher Education
claims its criteria are a more
objective method for evaluating
the quality of universities, since
they rely on more quantifiable
variables.
"These tables represent the
most comprehensive and sophis-
ticated exercise ever undertaken
to provide transparent, rigor-
ous and genuinely meaningful
global-performance comparisons
for use by university faculty, stra-
tegic leaders, policymakers and
prospective students," the Times
Higher Education website boasts.
The criteria used in the Times
Higher Education process rely
heavily on research activity and
impact. Thirty percent of the
overall score relies on the vol-
ume, income and reputation of
research, while 32.5 percent of
the overall score relies on the
influence of the school's research
activity.
The rest of the overall score is
made up of the quality of teach-
ing and the learning environment'
- 30 percent of the total score -
and the international diversity of
an institution and the presence
of innovation through industry
income.

ensemble, but it was never offi-
cially required. He added that the
enforcement of the policy initially
presented a challenge for the club,
but it has been able to work through
it quite well.
"So many people are so passion-
ate about Glee Club, so they have
been willing to switch around their
schedules to fit it in," he said.
Griffith added that though this
is an administrative change in the
way things have been done in the
club for the past 50 years, it is noth-
ing the group can't handle.
Women's Glee Club director
Julie Skadsem said the Women's
Glee Club is an ensemble that has
been no stranger to this policy. The

group, she said, required its mem-
bers to register for the club as a
class for a number of years but has
always been able to make excep-
tions for students taking the maxi-
mum number of credits.
"If we had girls who were
already at 18 credits, we would
have them submit in writing why
they were unable to register," Skad-
sem said, adding that those appeals
will now have to be considered by
the School of Music under the new
enforcement rules.
The Michigan Marching Band
is one ensemble that has always
heavily enforced this policy among
its participants, according to direc-
tor Scott Boerma. Boerma said it is
