Subject: Academic program ranking and safety

People in academia may be aware that yesterday the National Research 
Council released its 15-year-in-the-making ranking of grad programs 
nationally. Jyllian Kemsley, the C&EN blogger on lab safety issues, was 
alert enough to review the criteria for these rankings for health and 
safety parameters. She found none. Her report can be found at

Perhaps this connects to some of the findings of the Division's safety 
culture survey earlier this year...
