What is the Value of AAU Membership, College Rankings, etc., etc., etc.

This May 5 post in the Chronicle of Higher Education describes the AAU as a “retro old-boys network that is ripe for change.” This is an interesting opinion, but I think we would all agree that every higher ed institution must develop collaborative relationships with other higher ed institutions and other organizations to advance the mission of the institution. Are organizations like the AAU still important or do higher ed institutions need to identify different collaborative, more inclusive, relationships and partnerships?
