Scientific and Engineering Research Facilities at Colleges and Universities, 1996.
National Science Foundation, Arlington, VA. Div. of Science Resources Studies.
On a biennial basis since 1986, the National Science Foundation has collected data on issues related to Science and Engineering (S&E) research facilities at U.S. colleges and universities. This report presents the major findings from the 1996 survey and compares them with those from earlier efforts. A brief description of the study methods precedes a discussion of several issues that focus on the S&E research facilities in research-performing colleges including: (1) the amount of space available for S&E research in U.S. colleges and institutions; (2) the adequacy of this space and its condition; (3) the construction of S&E research space as well as the repair and renovation of existing space; (4) the source of funding for repairs and construction; and (5) the research facility needs of colleges and universities. Profiles of historically black colleges and universities and a select group of institutions that focus on undergraduate education follow the summary. The last section of the report examines issues that relate to animal research facilities. Appendices contain technical notes, a list of sampled institutions, the survey questionnaire, references, validation of estimates of deferred project costs, and detailed statistical tables.
