Additional Funding Sources

This research was supported by Boise State University.

Abstract

Publications like the Time Magazine or U.S. News & World Report have been ranking American Universities for years. Year after year however, rankings like these are subject to bias and outside influence. In an attempt to prevent potential bias, our project focuses on a mathematical approach to University rankings. BroncoRank is a ranking system utilizing the Google Page Rank Algorithm to impartially rank institutions using their peer institution lists.
