In SAT Score Scandal, CMC Admissions Dean Richard Vos Resigns

(President Gann, image courtesy of cmc.edu)

Updated Below. Updated again 1/31 at 3:02pm This morning, Claremont McKenna College President Pamela Gann reported to the CMC community that since 2005, the Office of Admission has inflated the stats of test scores for incoming classes. A senior administrator in the Office admitted to moving the scores up by an average of 10 to 20 points each year.

The following is the full email from President Gann:

Members of the Claremont McKenna College Community,

I am writing to inform you about an important matter related to the accuracy of the Office of Admission’s reporting of admission data.

Earlier this month, I received information from within the College that the Office of Admission had reported inaccurate SAT statistics for the fall 2011 entering class. Upon receiving this information, I asked Jerome Garris, Vice President and Dean Emeritus, to conduct a review of this issue in coordination with the Office of Institutional Research. During Dean Garris’ review of this matter, a senior administrator in the Office of Admission disclosed that he had been solely responsible for falsely reporting SAT statistics since 2005.

Although the degree of inaccuracies varied over time, we understand that the reported critical reading and/or math SAT scores were generally inflated by an average of 10-20 points each. For the fall 2010 class, which is the most recent year that has been reported generally to the public, the individual reported a combined median of 1,410 when the actual should have been 1,400, and reported a 75th percentile score of 1,510 when the actual should have been 1,480. It is also important to note that, while overall statistics were manipulated, we do not have reason to believe any student’s individual score was altered.

As an institution of higher education with a deep and consistent commitment to the integrity of all our academic activities, and particularly our reporting of institutional data, we take this situation very seriously.  I have therefore initiated a series of actions to respond to this matter. First, the individual has taken full responsibility and has resigned his position from the College effective immediately. At this time, we have no reason to believe that other individuals were involved. If we learn otherwise, we will take prompt and appropriate action.

Second, we have engaged outside legal counsel from O’Melveny & Myers to complete an independent review of our admission-related data processes. In addition, we are contacting and cooperating with external groups that may have received erroneous information to provide corrected data. Finally, we are reviewing our internal data gathering and reporting processes and will strengthen them to ensure that this type of conduct will not occur in the future.

While I am sorry to report this to you, I remain deeply committed to ensuring that Claremont McKenna will respond to this matter in a manner that is accurate, honest, and that will reflect the longstanding integrity of our great college.

Sincerely,
Pamela B. Gann, President

Just last week, the CMC Forum reported glowingly on record applications to the College. At a competitive and selective liberal arts college such as CMC, the pressure to improve statistics is enormous. But no student should need to cheat on a test to get into a better college, and no college should need to alter its stats just to jump into the top ten in the U.S. News and World Report rankings.

CMC needs to reconsider its priorities and stop feeling a need to fudge the numbers (19 person classes also fall into this) just to make itself look better to the outside world. It doesn’t matter what we look like on paper. Just like a student is not fairly represented by his or her score on a test, a college is not fairly evaluated by rankings algorithms.

Claremont McKenna College is an incredible school in an amazing academic community. Anybody who attends one of the Claremont Colleges can attest to that. If we happen to come out on top in some meaningless list of computer rankings, so be it; but let’s do it with integrity next time.

Update 3:30pm, 1/30/12:

Richard Vos’s bio was also removed from the CMC Admissions website Monday.

Richard Vos, who was Vice President and Dean of Admission and Financial Aid at Claremont McKenna College, has resigned, the Port Side can confirm from multiple sources.

Vos is no longer listed as a member of the Admissions staff, though his name and biography are still visible in this Google cache. Vos’s name was also removed from the list of the college’s senior staff.

A headline on CMC’s website boasting, “CMC Ranked 9th Best Liberal Arts College” was removed Monday.

According to the now-removed bio, Vos began as Dean of Admissions at CMC in 1987.

Max Benavidez was unable to confirm that Vos no longer works at CMC, citing California privacy law. Benavidez is CMC’s Associate Vice President for Public Affairs, Communications and Marketing.

This banner citing CMC’s rank as 9th best liberal arts college was removed from CMC’s website Monday.

Vos discussed the role of college rankings in caps on class sizes in a February 2008 interview with the Port Side‘s Andrew Bluebond CMC ’11. “I put pressure on myself to drive up the rankings because it is in my office’s best interest,” Vos said.

In April 2010, the CMC Forum quoted Vos as saying “The range is more important than the average” for SATs. The Forum noted in the same article, “Dean Vos left out specifics when we inquired about the class’ [sic] SAT range, a data point that supposedly drives the US News & World Report College Rankings.”

Assistant Dean of Students Eric Vos, who is Richard Vos’s son, was not involved in the admissions issue and still works at CMC.

Update: 10:30pm, 1/30/12:

According to ASCMC Vice President Aditya Pai CMC ’13, Max Benevidez, Associate VP for Public Affairs, will visit next Monday’s Senate Meeting “to discuss the incident and the College’s response, and listen to the questions/concerns of students.”

The CMC SAT Scandal is garnering national news coverage. The New York Times and Los Angeles Times were the first to report on the scandal. Within the last hour, major news outlets such as CNNFox News, and the Wall Street Journal have also picked up the story.

Update 9:00am 1/31/12:

Television news vans were spotted on the Claremont McKenna campus near 6th Street and Mills. The story is receiving coverage on both local and national news stations.

Update 3:02pm 1/31/12:

Associate VP of Admissions and Financial Aid Georgette DeVeres has taken over Richard Vos’s duties on an interim basis. Image courtesy cmc.edu.

According to a schoolwide announcement by President Pam Gann, Georgette DeVeres has been named interim head of Admissions and Financial Aid, taking over Richard Vos’s duties.

Dear CMC Community,

I am pleased to announce that effective today Georgette DeVeres, Associate Vice President for Admission and Financial Aid, will become the interim head of the College’s Admission and Financial Aid Office. She has worked at Claremont McKenna College since 1983, and is a member of my senior staff. Georgette is well-respected and nationally known within the admission and financial aid professions. She served nine years as a Trustee of the College Board, and served two years as the chairperson of its Board of Trustees.  Georgette received a Distinguished Leadership Award from the Western Region of the College Board. Presently, she serves on the Reauthorization Task Force of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators. Georgette is an honorary member of the CMC Alumni Association, in recognition of her many years of service to the College. I look forward to continuing our work together.

Sincerely,
Pamela B. Gann, President

    This guy was “solely responsible”, huh.

    • yeah... says:

      i wonder how much pressure he faced from the administration in boosting the school’s rankings… isn’t the rapid rise in CMC’s publicity a key part of pam gann’s long-term mission here?

  2. Ashley says:

    Great article, and way to be prompt!

  3. Summer says:

    Good job Port Side for catching this quick!!

  4. Well Done says:

    Way to report quickly, accurately, and with significant facts for back up (much better than the pathetic Forum blurb that’s currently turning into a breeding ground for slanderous bullshit). Great reporting both of you.

  5. Laura says:

    “CMC needs to reconsider its priorities and stop feeling a need to fudge the numbers.” That seems a little harsh; we still don’t know how extensive the fraud was in terms of how many people involved; while maybe it’s something that CMC should focus on, what one man did should not necessarily change how we as students feel the school puts its emphases on.

  6. Brian says:

    Forget who was responsible. Who profited from it?
    Those who profited from this professionally (hearing this Madam President?) need to resign.
    Its the culture of “growth at all costs” in higher ed that is poisoning the pond.
    The “gains” in this (this is many years of false reporting) turn into gold for the administrators whose job is manufacturing institutional prestige not citizens of note.

    This is a small tight knit campus. These things weren’t done over 6 years by a “rogue” Dean of Admissions who just wanted to be unethical and lie. Pressure to grow. Pressure to climb. Pressure for good press.

    Win at all costs. Again, who profited from this? Who is in charge at CMC?

    • Charlie says:

      Brian, are you seriously suggesting that President Gann to resign for wanting to make CMC a better and more successful school? Under her leadership (obviously not solely because of her but she is also not devoid of credit) CMC has shot up the rankings and has been able to provide students with an increasingly valuable education with incredible opportunities all along the way. Unless facts emerge to the contrary, President Gann has handled this situation correctly so far. She has been open and honest with the CMC community and has dealt with the situation swiftly once it came to her attention instead of attempting to create some sort of institutional cover up like we have seen recently at other schools (ahem Penn St.). I am not the biggest fan of President Gann but it is unfair of you to use the inappropriate actions of one individual which she dealt with swiftly and properly as a reason to call for her resignation.

      • Craig says:

        It would be bad enough if Scripps were to suffer this ignominy – an institution emphasizing Arts and Letters. But CMC prides itself on the output of its citizen leaders … this scandal not only embarrasses the institution, but also the end-product – its alumni – which are critical to this school’s success, more than alumni are to other institutions.

        Whether as big-shot CEO’s stewarding vast conglomerates or as average citizens simply serving on a school or scout or church or AYSO board of trustees, being a CMC alumnus has become synonymous with being a Quality Individual. The alumni are why “CMC has shot up in the rankings”; not because of improvement in arbitrary statistics.

        It’s ironic that because of CMC’s emphasis on selectivity, many among this long line of quality alumni wouldn’t stand a prayer of getting into the place now. Time will tell whether those imminent alumni can measure up to those before them … THAT be Pamela Gann’s legacy … but for now, as Peter Drucker would say, “The fish rots from the head back”. Pam, it’s time to go.

        “9th Place” … BFD

        • 5C Student says:

          I’m not sure why you’re implying it is worse for CMC to fudge numbers than Scripps. It would be just as atrocious and regrettable at any of the 5C’s. We all produce “Quality Individuals” and well-prepared alumni.

          “The alumni are why ‘CMC has shot up in the rankings’; not because of improvement in arbitrary statistics.” – Yes, CMC alumni are productive, impressive, and high quality but when US News & World Report or Princeton Review creates official rankings, they do indeed use these arbitrary statistics plugged into a calculation to churn out the results. Gann was successful at increasing CMC’s rankings because she knew how to (legally and legitimately) work the system and the numbers. For example, 19 person classes in the Fall, much fuller classes in the Spring.

          • Real 5C Student says:

            Let’s compare numbers and look at the earning power and % employed after graduation before saying that Scripps produces a competitive number of “Quality Individuals” and well-prepared alumni.

          • Craig P. says:

            5C: I didn’t mean to disparage Scripps or any of the other 4C’s. Under the CMC website directory for Prospective Students, though, it defines us our college as “one that educates leaders for business, government and the professions.” That implies a burden of integrity which we’re not meeting.

  7. Rob says:

    Seems to me that all students who decided to attend CMC since 2005 are probably victims of fraud. Students choose colleges at least in part based on ratings, which are presumed to convey accurately important measures of an institution’s quality. If an agent of the school knowingly provided U.S. News and others false information to convey to prospective students, then the school advertised itself as possessing an inaccurate level of quality. It’s difficult to see how students would not be the winners of a class action suit.

  8. sara says:

    congrats on getting linked to by the Times! & great article, russell

  9. Emma says:

    While this is truly unfortunate, at least it seems that the appropriate measures have been taken in light of what has been going on. Hopefully people haven’t been choosing CMC as their school solely on the basis of the test scores, and this scandal doesn’t change the core qualities that make CMC, and the Claremonts as a whole, excellent colleges and places we should be proud to call our schools.

  10. Greg Zahner says:

    Dean Vos admitted the students CMC deserved, not the ones with the highest SAT scores. If Dean Vos simply wanted higher SAT scores, he would have admitted the students that had them. We routinely reject kids with very high scores. When selecting students for acceptance Dean Vos and the rest of CMC value fit and character. They accepted students that would contribute to the CMC experience. It is a sad thing that higher education has become so obsessed with scores that Dean Vos was placed in a position of trying to increase scores while maintaining CMC’s character. At the end of the day we are a family and the character of our student body was preserved. People come to CMC for the students and faculty, not a 10 point difference in SAT scores. How many students on campus could even tell you our average scores before today? Dean Vos made a bad decision and he is paying the price. But don’t forget his nearly 25 years of service and his passionate commitment to CMC. He took the time to write personal notes on our acceptance letters and travelled internationally, despite his declining health, to promote the college. Many of us are here because of him.

    He made a mistake and lets learn from it. We need better accountability, oversight, and data management from an institutional standpoint. This won’t do any lasting damage to our school’s reputation. A prospective student who really cares about a 10-20 point difference in mean SAT scores probably doesn’t belong here anyway. We are ranked high because we deserve it. A score inflation on the SAT would have almost no effect on the US News rankings since the scores are worth only 7.5% of the ranking and Vos inflated the numbers by such a small amount.

    He may have made some mistakes and inadvertently hurt us, but I will miss Dean Vos. He will always be a part of the CMC family.

    • Charlie says:

      My thoughts exactly. It is a shame to see this happen especially as many of us saw Dick Vos as a man who took an in depth look at each student and admitted them based on their merits, fit with the school, personality and other similar factors rather than GPA and SAT scores. Hopefully this will open up a larger conversation which will help to diminish the overblown role of rankings and test scores in the world of elite higher education. May President Gann and the rest of the Claremont community continue to deal with this situation appropriately and learn and grow from it.

      • Erin Upton-Cosulich says:

        Well said! I agree with you both completely. He did an amazing job as Dean, and the CMC community should be forever thankful for his work.

        • Incredulous says:

          Who would trust the “character” of the school, and of its students, which you seem to believe Dean Vos did so much to preserve, when it was preserved by someone whose action has demonstrated a clear LACK of character? Who want to be chosen as a good “fit” by that person?

          • Character Matters says:

            Exactly.

            The evidence is obvious that he was dishonest. If he lied about something so fundamental to our institution, what else was he lying about?

            EVERYTIME the institution releases statistics we will now wonder if they are the genuine article.

            • Alum'07 says:

              Dick Vos was the same man who in 2004 explained to the Claremont Independent that CMC admitted fewer Asian students because, “Asian and Asian-American students are sometimes more involved in solitary activities than Latino students or white students[...] It’s more likely that an African-American student did not play the violin but maybe got involved in an athletic team, got involved in debate, got involved in student government, did things that we, in our value system at CMC, perceive to be a more CMCish fit. Leadership, group-oriented extracurricular activities that we feel are perhaps more in-line with our mission.”

              The fact that his character is under question is no surprise to some of us older alumni.

    • chipstah says:

      This is not a ‘mistake’– it is deliberate deception with intent. It is: dishonest; illegal; immoral; repugnant; despicable; misleading; and fraud.

      Some ‘mistake’.

      If you can’t buy your way up the LIST then LIE way up the list.

      SHAME SHAME!
      Shame on Clairemont!

      • Hah says:

        Can’t even spell Claremont right…you must be some community college hipster.

        • Arielle Z. says:

          Have you never made a spelling mistake? I find it immature and insulting that you are linking community college students to having bad grammar/spelling or not being smart. Some people didn’t go to good high schools or can’t afford to go to a four year college. Some amazingly creative, smart, and successful people have started off at community college.

    • Alumna says:

      I wonder why this inflation has only taken place over the last six years when Dean Vos had been there for about 23? What changed such that he felt the need to do this? I am deeply saddened by this mistake as it will overshadow all the amazing things he did for CMC – need blind admission, fully meeting need rather than gapping in financial aid packages (common other places!) and ushering in the no loan policy. I think he also increased the amount of the McKenna Scholarship along the way. Some of my dearest friends and best memories are from CMC, and I can remember well the excitement the day I was admitted by Dean Vos. As I was always treated well by Dean Vos I can only assume he acted with good intentions, however regrettable
      they are now. If you have ever wished you could take something back and make up for the damage you did, show some compassion for this situation. You don’t have to excuse the behavior, but keep perspective. No one was physically harmed or endangered. It could have been much worse.

      For the record, alumni giving rate also plays into these rankings so if you want to make the situation better help increase the annual fund participation rate so there is no question that we earned it (and no, I don’t work at CMC and am not on the alumni board!)

      And whether you like President Gann or not, give credit where credit is due. The role of a college president today is largely fundraising. Count the dollars, she has certainly earned her credibility there. And there actually are alumni who thought having a female (and reputed democrat) leading CMC was a HUGE step forward. The school may have gone co-ed in 1979, but it is still going through some growing pains to embrace the idea. While most of the faculty from Claremont Men’s College days have retired, alumni stick around for a lot longer and in true CMC tradition are not shy. I would not have wanted to be the first woman leader to take it on. Women leaders get all kinds of nasty labels for their demeanor, men get called “strong and decisive.” Don’t think for a minute sexism is dead. I don’t have a strong opinion of her presidency one way or the other, but judge her on specific verifiable facts, not on being a woman with leadership skills.

      Regardless of ranking, CMC has become a better place since I graduated, and I loved it then. This is only a minor blip and will soon be yesterday’s news. In the end it is really only Dean Vos’s life that will be drastically changed. I will also miss him.

  11. Character Matters says:

    Let’s get real here. Gann needs to be out for this.

    Dean Vos inflated the numbers so that we could make our steady climb in the U.S. News and World Report rankings. He did this because he got pressure from Pam Gann whose failures as a leader we overlooked because she was good at boosting the national reputation of the school.

    That reputation is now shot. The L.A. Times, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Seattle Post Intelligencer, The Chronicle of Higher Education, The Wall Street Journal, Fox News, CNN, The Washington Post, CBS News, STLtoday.com, The Huffington Post, ABC News… and that was just in the first twenty-four hours. Rightly or wrongly, we will be known internationally as the school that cheated for SEVEN YEARS in its reporting. The only way to salvage this is for President Gann to resign, effective immediately. The magnitude of the cheating (which we don’t really know) is not the issue here. We will likely never know the truth here because O’Melveny & Myers cannot be trusted to complete an independent investigation because its checks are cut by CMC. A full and thorough review of our admissions data needs to be published online and vetted by statisticians from the College Board and other liberal arts colleges. We need to be totally open and publicly apologize to the entire elite college going community.

    Nobody will care about little or much cheating went on. If a student cheated, just a little bit, they would be punished with a F in a class and going on academic probation. This happened to a friend of mine. It nearly ruined his life and it was a tough call as to whether or not he actually cheated. If a professor cheated just a little bit on his academic data, it would be professionally damaging.This is about the character of our institution. It is about the lack of quality controls within our college’s admissions department. There are a lot of questions and none of them are good. Did no one check Dean Vos’s statistics? If not, why not? Did President Gann know about this before this year’s class applied? Pam Gann has to answer this question: Was she incompetent or complicit? After all, Dean Vos only reported to her. It’s easy to see why Dean Vos would cheat, but it doesn’t excuse it. (His wife was suffering from cancer at the same time this cheating began apparently.) But many people are suffering at our college for many different reasons and that doesn’t excuse bad behavior. I doubt it is a coincidence that the same year that the Posse program started up at Claremont McKenna was the same year that this fraud started. You can’t bring in a bunch of students with lower scores without affecting the overall scores.

    Vos acted this way because the college lusted after the rankings because our president lusted after climbing the rankings. We need to know if her compensation was tied to that increase and if Vos’s compensation was tied to them. (This is standard practice at a lot of top flight schools.) Many students who are here decided to come here based upon that ranking. They were lied to and the deception was widespread. CMC trumpeted out its new U.S. News & World Report ranking to alumni, with the not so subtle message that Pam Gann and the administration was responsible for making our degrees worth more. We were encouraged to donate because of this climb. We were all lied to. But this wasn’t the first time, was it? We excused embarrassment after embarrassment because, hey, she was increasing the value of our degrees. We excused how she was changing the very character of our college because, hey, she was increasing the value of our degrees.

    But now that rationale no longer exists. President Gann has embarrassed our college repeatedly. She backed Kerri Dunn’s hoax in 2004. She backed Bassam Frangieh’s hateful bigotry. She backed Jonathan Petropolous’s fraudulent scholarship and extortion of a Holocaust survivor. She backed (and promoted) Michael Wilner for a CNN internship, only to have him go and assault another student and face criminal charges. The embarrassments need to stop. She needs to be fired. Integrity starts at the top. Character matters. I would rather go to a lower ranked school, if I could be proud of its accomplishments. We were doing just fine before Gann came along. We were in the top twenty; we had one of the top flight government and economics departments in the country. I, for one, am so thoroughly disgusted at Pam Gann. For a college that stresses “leadership,” she sure follows the leader when it comes to rankings. We deserve better.

    • Ted Moesby says:

      The above argument asserts that Pressure from Gann = Gann inflating the scores herself. I hold that until such a link is established, then the assertion holds no water.

      While I myself have mixed feeling regarding Gann, you are just making a poor excuse to promote your own anti-Gann agenda. Focus on the heart of the matter, not some useless drivel meant to advance one’s ulterior motives.

      If you wish to advance your anti-Gann objectives, I suggest writing your own article on the matter and not making some wayward connection to the SAT scores case.

    • Brian N says:

      Did you honestly re-post a block of text you wrote on the Forum to the Portside? -_-

      • Ted Moesby says:

        I started on the Portside, but then realized he posted the exact same thing in both areas, so I psoted the same response.

        • Brian N says:

          Ah, that was in response to Character Matters. I would never call out Ted Moseby, he has to spend all the time he can trying to meet the mother.

  12. Ted Moesby says:

    Also: We should be thankful that the primary results come out tonight and will likely stop a majority of the coverage on this case.

  13. Scripps Whops says:

    It’s amusing that while CMC was fudging the numbers in their favor, Scripps was accidentally messing up their ranking. (Scripps fell 6 places because they reported that 39% of students were in the top 10% of their class when in reality it was 70%.)

    This incident is simply another indication that the ranking system needs to be tossed out. If schools are lying to get ahead on the rankings, it’s the students who are supposed to benefit from the ranking system who are being hurt.

  14. By the Numbers says:

    SAT scores account for 7.5% of college rankings at US News & World Report.
    A 10 point increase in a 1800-point test equates to 0.556%.
    The effect of a 10 point difference: 0.042%. That’s 1/25 of 1%.

    Just because a small bit of number fudging hardly affects a school’s overall ranking doesn’t make the issue a trivial matter. It does show, however, that trying to increase the numbers was an asinine notion to begin with because it carried little potential benefit with amazing risk.

    I realize the fear people have about the potential risks these findings have for students of CMC but I think it will ultimately result in more benefits than drawbacks. Just because a school fudged some numbers, their entire reputation would not be called into question. If these same news came out about Harvard, I find it hard to believe that the number of students apply would drop substantially (if at all). It will be an annoying reputation to fight off but this won’t be lasting. Either the story will quickly sink into oblivion, or this news will spur more transparency and oversight in college data tracking. If the latter is the result, other perpetrating schools could be exposed by outside overseers. Either way, CMC is now starting from a clean slate and every other school in the nation will be forced to play defensively because the validity of their numbers will be called into question. The best is yet to come!

    • Ranking voter says:

      Yes, but he fudged the numbers for 6 years and increases in SAT are noted in ranking and by voting members, which I am one for US Nes and World Report.

      This is a huge institutional problem and a shameful day or CMC.

      It also sheds light on a poorly managed campus.

  15. alum says:

    Don’t expect to find out anything more from the O’Melveny & Myers “outside” legal investigation than what Pamela Gann and powerful CMC trustees want us to hear: just as the O’Melveny & Myers report about Jonathan Petropoulos was initially employed in an attempt to clear the professor’s name and silence dissenting faculty (and to preempt a negative story in the Claremont Independent, an effort which failed), this O’Melveny & Myers report will NEVER be published, and at best we will hear only a highly opportunistic summary of its supposed findings. Which is not to say the report won’t be useful for the CMC administration in finding out who knew what and when, and to lock down certain parties from future public dissent against Pamela Gann’s “lone gunman theory” about Dick Vos. 

    But clearly Vos wasn’t the only one in the know: plenty of people work in admissions and have seen the real numbers over the years. The careful choreography of Vos’s resignation (undoubtedly with full pension benefits after a long career, and of course he has nothing to say to the press, etc) leads me to think the fix has been in for a long time, and that there was fear the story of top-down administration and/or trustee pressure to alter SAT scores and manipulate college rankings would get into the press, and it was simply easier for a “fall guy” to retire. Embarrassing as the current story is for CMC, it feeks like damage control in lieu of much darker revelations.

  16. alum says:

    “feels” like damage control (not “feeks”)

  17. baba frog says:

    hope they decide to refund everyone’s tuition money from 2005 onward … any word on whether/when they will do so?

    • What? says:

      What sort of diminished mental capacity even remotely allows thinking that that’s going to happen? They aren’t going to be refunding tuition, you idiot.

  18. 5Cs One Cup says:

    How are people ignoring the truly pressing issue here – that the news reporter pictured above is blatantly de-wedgy-ing herself?!

  19. Rod says:
