Notes

[4] In May 2010, an ad hoc committee of the National Academy of Sciences began a 2-year project to report on the top 10 actions that Congress, the federal government, state governments, research universities, and others could take to assure the ability of the American research university to maintain excellence in research and doctoral education. Among other areas, the committee is focusing on the financial capacity of public research universities in the United States.
