The Top American Research Universities The Center for Measuring University Performance's research universities consist of academic institutions that had more than $40 million in federal research expenditures in fiscal year 2010. In the following tables, institutions are listed alphabetically with the most current data available on each measure and their rank on each measure for each year. The Center for Measuring University Performance provides both the national rank (rank among all universities) and the control rank (rank within private or public universities). We include five years of data for each measure, which correspond to the same data years used in each of the five prior The Top American Research Universities reports. In addition to the nine performance variables presented in Part I tables, these tables also include other institutional characteristics related to student enrollment, medical schools, land grant status, ownership, research focus, and National Merit and Achievement Scholars.
