US News and World Report recently compiled a list of 15 colleges that underperform. Those included in the report are Arizona State University, University of Arizona, University of Illinois at Chicago, Virginia Commonwealth University, University of Montana, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, University of Colorado at Boulder, George Mason University, University of New Mexico, University of Oregon, University of Utah, University of Maryland, Baltimore County, Indiana University Bloomington, University of Kansas, and University of Colorado - Denver.

According to the Huffington Post, the report said:

"If a school's academic reputation ranking is better than its overall ranking, it means that the school's performance in the key academic indicators used by U.S. News is not keeping pace with its academic reputation. This could mean that the school's undergraduate academic reputation is benefiting from a much higher reputation held by its various graduate schools. Or, it could mean that the school's reputation has yet to fully reflect negative trends that are taking place in the underlying academic indicators."
