International Survey of Research University Leadership: Capital Spending Priorities
The study presents the results of a survey of research university upper management about what they think priorities should be for their university’s capital spending. Are they spending enough? Too much? Should they be spending more or less on the academic library, scientific infrastructure, dormitories, sports facilities, and information technology.
The 56-page study presents the findings from a survey of 314 deans, department chairmen, provosts, registrars, trustees, chancellors, vice presidents, administrative department directors and other upper level administration and management from more than 50 research universities in the USA, Canada, the UK, Ireland and Australia. Data is broken out by title and by department or work role, such as for fundraising and marketing, technology transfer, student services, educational administration and other categories. Data is also broken out by country, for public and private universities and by other variables such as level of compensation and gender of the survey participants, among others.
