This report provides a detailed overview of research activity at the three research institutions of the University and Community College System of Nevada: Desert Research Institute (DRI); the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV); and the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR). It is based on survey data provided by the three institutions for fiscal years 1994 through 1997. The report includes data on total sponsored awards and total sponsored projects expenditures, funding profile, indirect cost recovery, graduate education, and comparative national data. It notes that between 1994 and 1997 DRI, UNLV, and UNR generated over $408 million in grants and contracts, and that combined expenditures for sponsored projects increased from nearly $97 million in 1994 to $103 million in 1997. Overall, more than 60 percent of funds spent on research and other sponsored programs was received from the federal government, though the percentage of funds received from the federal government declined from 64 percent in 1994 to 61 percent in 1997. In 1997, the three institutions enrolled 4,846 full-time-equivalent graduate students, an increase of nearly 11 percent over 1994. A copy of the report information request and definitions of terms are included. (Contains 9 data tables.) (MDM)
