Faculty members at SIUE consistently demonstrate their internal drive and dedication to contribute to U.S. and international scholarship, reflected in SIUE’s increasing external support statistics. In fiscal year 2013, SIUE faculty and staff submitted 272 new proposals to outside agencies and received more than $42 million in new externally sponsored research and public service awards.

More than 150 SIUE faculty members submitted proposals, while over 100 had active awards. Washington Monthly ranked SIUE 7th for research expenditures by master’s-granting institutions out of more than 680 such institutions nationwide.

“As impressive as the numbers may be, they fail to impart the tales of investigation, discovery and creation behind the research,” said Associate Provost and Dean of the Graduate School Jerry B. Weinberg. “I hope you will be a frequent visitor to these web resources as we share with you SIUE activities, creations, outreach and discoveries.”

SIUE faculty and staff receive grants and contracts from funding organizations such as:

  • National Institutes of Health
  • National Science Foundation
  • National Endowment for the Humanities
  • National Endowment for the Arts
  • NASA
  • Department of Health and Human Services
  • United States Environmental Protection Agency
  • U.S. Department of Education
