UNO Programs in the Top 100

My earlier browsing of the NSF Webcaspar database of research expenditures was prompted by an email one of our programs received that suggested it was in the top 100 of federal research expenditures for its discipline in 2009. That prompted me to search the database. According to that database and our NSF Expenditure Survey for 2009 UNO has three programs in the sciences and social sciences in the top 100 of their discipline: Sociology (#58), Chemistry (#59) and Earth & Environmental Science (#61). These three programs had more research expenditures last year than any other Louisiana university (by discipline). We also had two other programs that were in the top 200 and had more research expenditures than any other LA university: Psychology and Electrical Engineering. Congratulations one and all.
