- Research I university
Research I university was a category previously used by the
Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Educationto indicate those universities that engaged in extensive research activity.
In the 1994 edition of the Carnegie Classification, Research I universities were defined as those which::* Offer a full range of baccalaureate programs:* Are committed to graduate education through the doctorate:* Give high priority to research:* Award 50 or more doctoral degrees each year:* Receive annually $40 million or more in federal support [cite web |url=http://math.la.asu.edu/~kuang/ResearchI.html |title=Carnegie Research I Universities |author=University of Washington |accessdate=2009-09-23] The Carnegie Foundation reported that 59 institutions met these criteria in 1994. [David Weerts, "State Governments and Research Universities: A Framework for a Renewed Partnership". New York: Routledge, 2002, p. 26.]
In their interim 2000 edition of the classification, the Carnegie Foundation renamed the category "Doctoral/research universities-extensive" to "avoid the inference that the categories signify quality differences."cite web |url=http://www.carnegiefoundation.org/about/sub.asp?key=18&subkey=405#1.1 |title=Carnegie Classifications FAQs |author=Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching |accessdate=2009-09-22] The Foundation replaced their single classification system with a multiple classification system in their 2005 comprehensive overhaul of the classification framework, [cite web |url=http://net.educause.edu/ir/library/pdf/pub8003l.pdf|title=Appendix E: Carnegie Classification (2000) Definitions |author=Educause |accessdate=2009-09-23] so that the term "Research I university" is no longer valid.
