The paper conducted a comprehensive scoring and ranking on the public welfare investment value of all the universities and colleges in America through establishing the comprehensive evaluation model. Firstly, those universities and colleges with insufficient information disclosure were removed from the data and the multiple linear regression method was used to supplement some remaining missing data. Secondly, 15 relevant variables were selected and then combined with multi-level fuzzy comprehensive evaluation (MFCE) model and analytic hierarchy process (AHP) model to obtain the composite index of all the American universities and colleges. Subsequently, American universities and colleges were ranked in accordance with the index and those with top rankings deserved more investment. Finally, the sensitivity analysis was conducted on the scoring and ranking of American universities and colleges.
