The goal of developing a high impact research university, measured by Carnegie Classification R-1, Very High Research, was achieved in December last year. The classification is measured by expenditures in research and doctoral graduates of all disciplines, including the sciences, engineering, social sciences and humanities. This classification represents a mature, comprehensive university where all fields of academic, scholarly and research endeavor matter. When Provost Carman and I visited all of the academic departments in 2017 and 2018, we got the feeling that faculty wanted to be part of not only quality, research university but a top-ranked, comprehensive university identified as Carnegie R-1.
