About Research and Creative Activities
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 2011, SIUE faculty and staff submitted 377 new proposals to outside agencies, showing an 8 percent increase over fiscal year 2010 and a remarkable 46 percent increase from fiscal year 2007.
Nearly 40 percent of SIUE faculty members submitted proposals, 46 percent of whom received awards. As a result, SIUE faculty and staff received more than $34 million in new externally sponsored research and public service awards. This remarkable achievement is one of the reasons why SIUE sponsored activity is ranked sixth nationally among Master's granting institutions, as reported in Washington Monthly magazine, moving up from eight position in 2010.
As impressive as the numbers may be, they fail to impart the tales of investigation, discovery and creation behind the research. I hope you will be a frequent visitor to these web resources as we share with you SIUE activities, creations, outreach and discoveries.
