OUCH!!! :’(

“The Davidson professor was right, we don’t have a ‘top-tier research university’ and that is a problem. UNC Charlotte brought in more than $50 million in research funding last year, good for them. The three schools in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill research triangle brought in more than $1.7 billion. UNC Charlotte is a perfectly adequate commuter school but it’s not a top-tier research university and whining about being taken seriously doesn’t help the cause.” – F

The schools in the Triangle have about a 100 year head start on us when it comes to research. The gap will close. F sounds bitter. Probably works for a Charlotte grad.

FWIW, there are three classifications in the Carnegie system: Highest, Higher, and Moderate.

In NC, Duke, Chapel Hill, and State are Highest. ECU, NCA&T, Charlotte, UNCG, and Wake are Higher. Gardner-Webb is Moderate.

Let’s see…two law schools, two medical schools, a top rank Ag school…none of which attract money (sarcasm). Charlotte is doing as well as can be expected with 20+ doctoral programs and some excellent MA programs…research is more than simply the money, it’s also productivity…Charlotte is doing it’s job just fine. Will it continue to grow and expand, absolutely…

Comparing three schools to one just shows that “F” is clueless about math…

Perception is reality, and unfortunately “F” is pretty spot on about our perception (unfortunately). This is why it’s so important that we correct people, inform people, be vocal about our name change, and succeed in sports. Anything that helps our brand is huge at this point. The more we grow our brand, the more people find it ridiculous that we don’t have a med school, and other programs. Trust the process.

I’m in the process…perception among the community is one thing, perception among peer institutions something else and Charlotte has a solid reputation. Local perception for non-flagship institutions is always difficult to change, particularly in a place like Charlotte that has such a “new” population…get people to campus, uptown center, sporting events, academic events. When I started at the university, it was said the longest ten miles in the world is between the campus and uptown. Will the light rail hep? Perhaps. I think the jury’s gonna be out for a while. Not a matter of trusting the process, it’s more a matter of being patient with the process.

clt says that Harvard and Charlotte bring in over $850M in research funding annually.

Stats can easily be manipulated.
