Start-Up Costs in American Research Universities.
Ehrenberg, Ronald G.; Rizzo, Michael J.; Condie, Scott S.
This report briefly summarizes findings from the 2002 Cornell Higher Education Research Institute survey of start-up costs at the over 220 universities classified as research and doctoral universities by the Carnegie Foundation in 1994. It reports the mean start-up cost packages across institutions for new assistant professors and senior faculty, broken down by institutional type (public/private), Carnegie classification, and field (biology, chemistry, engineering, physics, and astronomy) and also discusses the sources of funding for start-up costs.
