The Top American Research Universities

Research University Competition
and Financial Challenges

Each year as we prepare the Top American Research
Universities report, we consider the state of and the context
for competition among these institutions. The data reflect
the work of about two years past, and sometimes this
exercise feels a bit nostalgic when we find ourselves in a
recently and significantly challenged environment for high
performing institutions. Nonetheless, some of what we
have learned over the years of these reports helps put the
recent and anticipated events in some perspective.

Research Competition and
Institutional Resources

In this continuing effort, made perhaps even more interesting in the current economic context, we have learned that
while money matters in all institutions and is critical for
the research enterprise, the exact structure of university
budgets and the methods available to generate and spend
money vary considerably. Not only do public and private
universities operate within somewhat different, if overlapping, financial structures, but within each sector different
institutions will have significantly different budgeting and
resource allocation systems; legal, regulatory, and historical
constraints; and institutional profiles. Those institutions
with large resident student bodies operate within a much
different framework than those with much smaller student
populations. Those with larger numbers of graduate students compared to undergraduates will have different cost
structures. Those funded in substantial amounts by state
appropriated revenue and less by student fees will have a
different context than those whose revenue comes primarily
from tuition and endowment. Institutions whose facilities
are funded by state bond issues paid by state appropriations
as a state obligation have a different capital construction
process than do those universities that finance their buildings through debt paid from institutional annual earned
revenue.

Some universities have a more substantial commitment to
high cost programs in health care, the STEM disciplines,
and professional schools than others. Some institutions, by
virtue of their funding model, spend much more on need
based financial aid than others; some spend much more on
merit-based aid. These are but a few of the many differences that have significant impact on institutional management and influence the budget allocations that serve to
support high performance research competition. If we
attempt to understand research university competitiveness
by focusing on only one or a subset of these (which them-

selves are a subset of the many other variations in university operations), we are sure to over generalize and miss
important distinctions that influence research university
performance.
Measuring Institutional Wealth

Although this complexity makes it difficult to offer valid
generalizations about the wisdom of particular university
policies that affect income and expenses, it helps us
understand that while research universities may have
significantly different revenue sources and manage their
expenditures in substantially different ways, the revenue
imperative is a constant for all institutions. Some measure
of institutional wealth is clearly a primary indicator of a
university’s ability to compete in a marketplace where the
critical and scarce elements of high performing faculty,
staff, and student talent, and the support structures required
to ensure their effectiveness, must all be purchased.

A casual review of the financial data available on the top
American research universities gives the clear impression
that the best performing institutions on our measures are
also among the wealthiest. Nonetheless, because these
high performing institutions vary in size, funding structure,
student and program composition, and ownership (public or
private) the measurement of institutional wealth in a useful
way has proved difficult. In the 2002 report, we approximated institutional wealth to see how closely it might predict research performance. In that exercise, we identified,
by using a method that estimated the endowment equivalent
of all sources of institutional income from every source,
and then discounted that number to adjust for the baseline
cost of instruction, what we could call disposable income,
as the critical measure of institutional wealth for our
purposes.
By disposable wealth, we mean the funds available for
an incremental investment in institutional priorities after
paying an estimate of the baseline cost of instruction.
Those priorities could be high quality undergraduate programs to attract better students, grants to graduate students,
support for research proposals to the federal government,
science facilities, libraries, computer systems, or, in short,
anything above the baseline cost of instruction that would
improve the university’s competitive position. Implicit in
this notion is that disposable wealth represents an opportunity, not a guarantee. If a university has no disposable
income after paying the cost of instruction, there is very
little opportunity to compete in the marketplace for the
scarce and expensive talent that drives research success.
However, the availability of disposable income does not
necessarily mean the university will spend it effectively in
competing for those elements of institutional activity that
define research performance.

The Top American Research Universities
The endowment equivalent exercise gave a clear indication
that institutional wealth is indeed a key indicator of an
opportunity for competitive research performance, but the
methodology required considerable estimation. Our staff
has been working on alternative methodologies using
official financial statements. This effort, which takes
advantage of some clarifications in the reporting standards
for public and private institutions, offers the possibility of
a more precise measurement of institutional wealth. For
example, we can calculate an estimate of net assets and
net assets per student.

This measure, like the disposable income indicator calculated earlier, has its own methodological difficulties. While
it includes some adjustment for capital facilities, the data
do not appear to capture all of the relevant facilities costs
in the same way for all public and private institutions or
uniformly within the category of public institutions.
Nonetheless, when we compare net assets to federal
research expenditures for the top 50 institutions in our
group of over $40M annual research expenditures (excluding medical and stand alone institutions to focus on more
or less standard research universities), there appears to be
a clear relationship between the ranking of the research
institutions and their net assets. More careful analysis and
some improvements in the data that we expect in next
year’s financial reports should allow the calculation of a
better estimate of the relationship, but no matter how we
look at these institutions and their resources, sufficient
revenue to support the high cost of research performance
appears a necessity.
The Impact of Revenue Declines on
University Competitiveness

The recent dramatic reduction in state income and endowment wealth, now partially in recovery, highlights the
importance of institutional wealth. Research universities,
whether public or private, have been struggling with the
consequences of these revenue declines using a variety of
adjustment techniques in different proportions depending
on the specific circumstances of the institution and its revenue context. Layoffs, furloughs, postponed construction
projects; tuition and fee increases, program reductions, and
some structural rearrangements in institutional organization
have either taken place or are under discussion.

Faced with rapid and significant declines in revenue
from traditional sources, the first cycle of cost reduction
measures served to produce quick and often opportunistic
savings with minimal damage to institutional and programmatic integrity. Many institutions, with memories of previous financial downturns, implemented various adjustments
with the expectation that the financial cycle would be of
sufficiently short duration to require no major institutional
changes. Others, either because they anticipated a longer

down cycle or suffered a larger impact on their revenue as
a result of local circumstances or the composition of their
revenue, began reviewing the continued viability of their
institutional mission leading to the implementation of
significant institutional change.

The recalibration of university finances to accommodate
lower revenue from various sources has consequences for
all areas of institutional activity including undergraduate
programs, diversity opportunities, athletic enterprises,
and extending into the competitive success of research
programs. The adjustment process and the elements of a
research university’s mission affected will vary widely
between public and private sectors and within sectors.
Unlike many previous financial crises, however, the dramatic decline of stock market values and the exposure of
many private institutions to the consequences of high-yield,
high-risk investment strategies have required those private
and public institutions significantly dependent on endowment income to consider longer-term adjustment strategies.
The financial challenge affects most institutions, but
individual colleges and universities will respond in different ways depending on the composition of their revenue.
Where institutional budgets depend on legislative appropriations in states suffering dramatic revenue declines, the
impact of the financial crisis can be severe, but where
institutional budgets depend more on tuition and fees, the
impact may be less. Institutions whose budgets depend
significantly on endowment earnings may find the income
available for competitive investments and even the continued maintenance of high levels of performance substantially reduced.
Readjustment Strategies

In moments of major economic crises, transitional financial
readjustments often look more traumatic than they turn out
to be. Even though this current economic downturn is
more severe and longer than those of the recent past, and
even though the impact on both state revenue for public
universities and endowment wealth for private and many
public universities is more significant than in previous
cycles, it is not yet clear that the readjustments currently
taking place at research universities will result in a major
change in the competitive marketplace. In part this is because most research universities have stable faculty and
student populations, multiple sources of income, not all
of which is equally subject to the effects of the economic
crisis, and sophisticated management structures capable of
limiting the consequences of the revenue losses without
catastrophic readjustments.

Nonetheless, different strategies for handling the abrupt and
in many cases continuing loss of some revenue will have
different consequences. In addition, as mentioned above,

2009 Annual Report

3

The Top American Research Universities
universities have complex revenue and expenditure
structures that reflect the widely varying circumstances,
missions, and scale of their operations. Tuition and
fees remain a source of revenue not yet subject to major
declines for these research institutions. The range of
support from state government to public institutions varies
dramatically from as much as 30% or more of the institutional budget to under 5%. Some states have found ways
to buffer, if in many cases only temporarily, the loss of
state revenue. However positioned, competitive research
institutions have many tools for budget adjustment, and if
creatively employed, they can moderate the impact of the
declines in revenue and preserve the capacity to continue
to compete effectively. The complexity and stability of
research universities makes estimates of the changes in
competitiveness that could result from the resolution of the
current global economic decline speculative. Whatever
change in performance occurs as a result of revenue losses
and differential institutional responses, any substantial
reordering in the hierarchy of research university performance will likely take place slowly over a five to ten year
period.

The principal goal of the many adjustments strategies in
research universities will likely be the preservation of their
ability to sustain the competition for talent. As a result,
strategies that employ institutional reserves to maintain the
status quo may, depending on the length of the economic
recovery, leave institutions at a disadvantage relative to
universities that readjust more significantly to guarantee
the availability of money to recruit the next generation of
faculty and sustain the highly productive research groups
already at the institution. Some who do this well will have
the resources to raid high performing research groups
from institutions less effectively managed.

However individual universities respond, and how effectively they take advantage of the opportunities a crisis
provides, will depend on a wide range of structural, institutional, political, and financial circumstances. Much of the
public conversation that affects research universities will
focus on the cost and structure of undergraduate programs,
especially in public institutions. While this will be a critical conversation for those institutions, especially where the
volume of undergraduates sustains portions of the research
enterprise, it is not necessarily critical to the research
enterprise. Some institutions, public or private, will surely
reevaluate the wide scope of activities these research
universities support, some of which may no longer be economically viable. Speculation on these topics is a favorite
academic activity, exaggerated expectations of dramatic
change add drama to the exercise, but our experience in
studying these top American research universities recommends caution in anticipating big changes. High performing universities will continue to perform better than others,

even in a constrained resource environment. Less effective
institutions will likely remain less effective. The consequence of this challenged economic environment may
simply increase the competitive advantage of the most
successful universities.
The Stability of Research University Performance

It is more difficult to predict how much of this will affect
the competitive balance among research institutions. Over
the years we have been impressed with the remarkable
stability in the rankings of research universities based on
their annual expenditures from federally funded sources.
This stability is particularly notable at the top of the distribution, although as we look farther down the list, there is
more change in relative position. If we look at the five
years between 2002 and 2007, and focus on the most successful of America’s research universities, those with over
$40M in federal research expenditures, we can get a sense
of the competitive dynamics.

Among the top 20 public and private research universities
in 2007, only one was not among the top 20 in 2002. This
means that two universities changed places: one moved
up from number 35 in 2002 to number 20 in 2007, and 1
moved down from number 20 in 2002 to number 23 in
2007. In addition to the institution that dropped out of the
top twenty, 7 kept the same rank, 6 moved down in rank,
and 6 moved up. Another way to look at this, and other
groups in the list, is to look at the difference between institutions, which gives a sense of the amount of research
expenditure required to change rank. Although the range
of research expenditures in this top 20 group, excluding
the outlier of Johns Hopkins, is about $307M, the distance
that separates one institution from the next highest ranked
university ranges from about $46M to $9M. These numbers
indicate why precision in ranking numbers is less important
that maintaining a competitive position with the group.
The stability in this top group contrasts with the pattern
we find when we look at the twenty institutions ranking
last or at the bottom among those with over $40M in federal research expenditures in 2007. Among this bottom 20,
some six institutions fell from a higher ranked group into
the last 20. Moreover, within the last 20, some 12 institutions declined and 7 institutions increased in rank, with
only one staying the same. This greater ranking volatility
reflects the much smaller amount of research expenditures
that separate institutions in the last group. The university
with the largest amount in this group has $2.7M more
federal research expenditures than the institution with the
smallest amount. The smallest gap separating an institution
from the next highest ranked is only $6,000 in federal
research expenditures while the largest gap in this group is
still only $2.7M.

The Top American Research Universities
Dramatic increases in competitive position that would
move a university from the middle of one group of 20 institutions to the middle of the next group are relatively rare.
For example in the five years from 2002 to 2007 only four
institutions out of the over $40M group moved up 20 or
more positions. For those institutions in this high performing group, none failed to increase their federal research
expenditures in this period. The amount of growth varied,
of course. Excluding Johns Hopkins, the increases ranged
from as much as $198M to as little as $2M. In percentage
terms, the median growth rate for research expenditures
between 2002 and 2007 equaled about 28%. The pool of
dollars represented by these institutions grew from $17.4B
in 2002 to $24.1B in 2007 or an increase of 55%. An institution would have needed to grow at about 11% a year to
maintain its share of the group’s research expenditures.

Other elements that contribute to research university preeminence exhibit similar stability over time. Indicators that
reflect faculty performance such as National Academy
memberships or faculty awards are concentrated among a
relatively few institutions, most of which also rank high on
federal research expenditures. Universities that award many
doctoral degrees, recruit outstanding students, and capture
large amounts of annual giving are likely to continue to
do so. While the current economic malaise may last longer
than previous economic downturns, the broad impact on
most major public and private research universities will
likely result in only a modest impact on relative
performance.

All of this simply testifies to the remarkable stability of
research university hierarchies. The investment, institutional commitment, departmental and program focus on
competitive quality, and infrastructure for research and the
associated processes of faculty recruitment and institutional
investment are difficult to create. Once built, they pose a
formidable entry barrier to institutions that anticipate
breaking into this elite group or making dramatic advances
within the group. Nonetheless, some universities have

significantly improved their competitive position over
the years, and institutional readjustments to the current
economic downturn and recovery may contribute to somewhat larger changes in the relative ranking of institutions
on the indicators included in the Top American Research
Universities. We anticipate that the current economic
readjustments will most affect universities in the bottom
half of the over $40M group.

The Top American Research Universities report will
continue to track the performance of these high-powered
research enterprises. With the data recorded in the reports
published here dating back to 1996, we can continue to
observe changes in the research competitiveness of these
universities.
Adjustments to The Top American Research
Universities

In our continuing effort to improve the usefulness of these
reports, we have made some changes over the years. A
year ago we recalibrated our definition of the top American
research universities at over $40M in federal research
expenditures. This cutoff captures some 90% of federal
research expenditures recorded for American universities.
In addition, we began an effort to separate out the research
performance of institutions with and without the federal
research funding spent through medical schools. This provided another way of increasing the utility of comparisons
among institutions since often, although not always, medical schools contribute a substantial research component
to recorded university totals. In next year’s report, we
will remove the non-university medical and other research
institutions from our main list and include them in a separate table. By removing these more highly focused institutions from the main list, the comparisons will more closely
track the performance of comprehensive research universities. As always, we will continue to provide all the data in
downloadable form so that institutional researchers can
construct the most appropriate comparisons for their own
purposes.

Part I – The Top American Research Universities

The Center for Measuring University Performance determines the Top American Research Universities by their
rank on nine different measures: Total Research, Federal
Research, Endowment Assets, Annual Giving, National
Academy Members, Faculty Awards, Doctorates Granted,
Postdoctoral Appointees, and SAT/ACT range. (The Source
Notes section of this study provides detailed information
on each of the nine indicators.) The tables group research
institutions according to how many times they rank in the
top 25 on each of these nine measures. The top category
includes those universities that rank in the top 25 on all
nine indicators. The bottom category includes universities
with only one of the nine measures ranked in the top 25.
Within these groups, institutions are then sorted by how
many times they rank between 26 and 50 on the nine performance variables, with ties listed alphabetically. A similar
methodology produces a second set of institutions—those
ranked 26 through 50 on the same nine measures.

For the purpose of this study, The Center for Measuring
University Performance includes only those institutions
that had at least $40 million in federal research expenditures in fiscal year 2007. This is the same dollar cutoff used
last year. There were 160 institutions who met our criteria
for fiscal year 2007, 113 public and 47 private.

The first two tables list each institution with the most current data available for each measure and its corresponding
national rank (i.e., rank among all institutions regardless
of whether they are privately or publicly controlled). The
third and fourth tables provide the same nine data measures
but with the groupings determined by the control rank
(i.e., rank among all private or all public institutions).
Institutions ranking in the top 25 on at least one measure
are included in the tables with the (1-25) identifier, while
those ranking 26 through 50 are found in the tables labeled
with the (26-50) header.
• The Top American Research Universities (1-25)
identifies the 51 institutions (27 private, 25 public)
that rank in the top 25 nationally on at least one of the
nine measures.

• The Top American Research Universities (26-50)
identifies the 37 institutions (8 private, 26 public) that
rank 26 through 50 nationally on at least one of the
nine measures.

• The Top Private Research Universities (1-25)
identifies the 36 private institutions that rank in the top
25 among all private universities on at least one of the
nine measures.
• The Top Private Research Universities (26-50)
identifies the 11 private institutions that rank 26
through 50 among their private counterparts on at
least one of the nine measures.

• The Top Public Research Universities (1-25)
identifies the 43 public institutions that rank in the top
25 among all public universities on at least one of the
nine measures.
• The Top Public Research Universities (26-50)
identifies the 40 public institutions that rank 26
through 50 among their public counterparts on at
least one of the nine measures.

Many research universities rank highly both nationally and
among their public or private peers, and therefore appear in
more than one table. For example, of the 36 private institutions in the Top Private Research Universities (1-25) table,
27 universities also appear in the Top American Research
Universities (1-25) table.
Data found in these tables may not always match the
figures published by the original source. The Center for
Measuring University Performance makes adjustments,
when necessary, to ensure that the data reflect the activity
at a single campus rather than that of a multiple-campus
institution or state university system. When data are missing from the original source, The Center for Measuring
University Performance may substitute another figure, if
available. A full discussion of this subject, and the various
adjustments or substitutions made to the original data, is
in the Data Notes section of this report.
The Center for Measuring University Performance
presents these tables, along with prior years’ top universities, in Microsoft Excel spreadsheets on its web site
[http://mup.asu.edu].

The Center for Measuring University Performance

The Top American Research Universities

Part II – The Center for Measuring University
Performance – Research Universities

The Center for Measuring University Performance’s
research universities consist of academic institutions that
had more than $40 million in federal research expenditures
in fiscal year 2007. In the following tables, institutions are
listed alphabetically with the most current data available on
each measure and their rank on each measure for each year.
The Center for Measuring University Performance provides both the national rank (rank among all universities)
and the control rank (rank within private or public universities). We include five years of data for each measure, which
correspond to the same data years used in each of the five
prior The Top American Research Universities reports. In
addition to the nine performance variables presented in Part
I tables, these tables also include other institutional characteristics related to student enrollment, medical schools, land
grant status, ownership, research focus, and National Merit
and National Achievement Scholars. The Source Notes
section of this report provides detailed information on each
data element. Tables in this section include the following:
• Total Research Expenditures (2003-2007)

• Federal Research Expenditures (2003-2007)
• Research by Major Discipline (2007)
• Endowment Assets (2004-2008)
• Annual Giving (2004-2008)

• National Academy Membership (2004-2008)
• Faculty Awards (2004-2008)

• Doctorates Awarded (2004-2008)

• Postdoctoral Appointees (2003-2007)
• SAT Scores (2003-2007)

• National Merit and Achievement Scholars
(2004-2008)

• Change: Research presents trend data on total,
federal, and non-federal research (1998 and 2007)
in constant dollars.

• Change: Private Support and Doctorates provides
trend data on endowment assets (1999 and 2008) and
annual giving (1999 and 2008) in constant dollars, and
doctorates awarded (1999 and 2008).

• Change: Students includes trend data on SAT/ACT
ranges (1999 and 2007), National Merit and Achievement Scholars (2003 and 2008), and student headcount
enrollment (1998 and 2007).

• Institutional Characteristics includes state location,
highest degree offered, medical school and land grant
status, federal research focus (summary of federal
research by discipline), and total student enrollment.
• Student Characteristics provides headcount enrollment data broken out by level (i.e., undergraduate,
graduate, first-professional), part-time enrollment by
level, and degrees awarded.

• The Center for Measuring University Performance
measures presents the number of times a university
ranks in the top 25 (or 26-50) on the nine quality
measures in this year’s report as compared to the past
six years (2004-2009 reports).

Data found in these tables may not always match the
figures published by the original source. The Center for
Measuring University Performance makes adjustments,
when necessary, to ensure that the data reflect the activity
at a single campus rather than that of a multiple-campus
institution or state university system. When data are missing from the original source, The Center for Measuring
University Performance may substitute another figure, if
available. A full discussion of this subject, and the various
adjustments or substitutions made to the original data, is
in the Data Notes section of this report.

The prior years’ data or ranks may differ slightly from our
last report due to revised figures or estimates from the data
source or institution.

The Center for Measuring University Performance’s web
site [http://mup.asu.edu] provides these same tables in
Microsoft Excel spreadsheets for ease of analysis. In
addition to the over-$40-million group, the on-line tables
contain data on all institutions reporting any federal
research since 1990.

The Center for Measuring University Performance

The Top American Research Universities

Part III – The Top 200 Institutions

The following tables list the top 200 universities and
colleges on each of the nine performance measures,
along with National Merit and Achievement Scholars.
(The Source Notes section provides detailed information
on each of the 10 data elements.) Unlike the previous
tables in Parts I and II, this section includes data for all
academic institutions regardless of their federal research
activity level.

The Center for Measuring University Performance
provides each institution’s rank nationally among all
universities as well as its rank by institutional control
(i.e., rank among private or public peers). In cases where
several institutions tie for last place, we use a different
cutoff point. For National Academy members, we list all
institutions with at least one National Academy member
among their faculty. Tables in this section include:

Data found in these tables may not always match the
figures published by the original source. The Center for
Measuring University Performance makes adjustments,
when necessary, to ensure that the data reflect the activity
at a single campus rather than that of a multiple-campus
institution or state university system. When data are missing from the original source, The Center for Measuring
University Performance may substitute another figure if
available. A full discussion of this subject, and the various
adjustments or substitutions made to the original data, is
in the Data Notes section of this report.

The Center for Measuring University Performance
presents these tables, along with the prior years’ top 200, as
Microsoft Excel spreadsheets on-line at [http://mup.asu.edu].
