"UM spends record amount on research in FY 2017" - Michigan Daily. 12/5/2017.
UM announced $1.48 billion in research expenditures for FY2017, reaching a new high despite declining total federal support for research. VP for Research, Jack Hu, says that this level of total expenditures "continues to place UM as the top public research university and second among all universities in the country in terms of volume of research. Since most of this funding is through peer-reviewed competitive grants, it reflects the quality and competitiveness of our faculty.”
