    • Abstract:
      Officials at the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching changed the system that had been used to classify institutions of higher education in 2000. Part of the redesign was a change in the criteria for placement of doctoral degree granting institutions. Especially noteworthy was the removal of specific levels of research funding as a distinguishing feature of commitment to research. Do the new criteria accurately capture differences in priorities as measured by expenditures across all educational categories? Are there significant differences in overall patterns of spending that distinguish the types of graduate programs categorized by the new instrument? This research effort is an attempt to address these questions by examining expenditures in three major categories of university operations--research, instruction, and public service. (Contains 3 tables.)
