Higher Education Technology and Research: Creating Excellence through State Investments
New Jersey Commission on Higher Education
This report provides an overview of the benefits of the state of New Jersey's investments in higher education. Since fiscal 1998, over $300 million in state support has been provided for technology infrastructure and inter-institutional connectivity, scientific and other equipment, technology-based economic development initiatives, renowned faculty and programs in targeted high-tech disciplines, scientific discovery, and funds to attract federal research grants and contracts. Interspersed throughout the report are quotes from higher education leaders, reflecting on the importance of higher education technology and research. Without these investments, along with state support for facility renewal, replacement, and expansion on campuses, New Jersey?s system of higher education would have fallen seriously behind that of other states. Appendices provide details of expenditures at specific institutions.
