Bryant University statement regarding The Daily Beast

SMITHFIELD, R.I. — Bryant University today (Dec. 15, 2010) released the following statement regarding a Daily Beast article, "The 50 Druggiest Colleges," that included the University in its rankings:

Bryant University unequivocally rejects the characterization of The Daily Beast and is confident that an appraisal of the facts will reveal that its representations are without foundation. Moreover, we believe that the badly flawed methodology employed by The Daily Beast has penalized the University for its actions in supporting the strict enforcement of the drug laws of the State of Rhode Island. Without exception, Bryant refers all illegal use to appropriate law enforcement authorities; many institutions do not do so.
