You obviously missed my point


you can have all the gaudy buildings in the world and not be "R1".

You have to have the funding per student by the legislature to be R1. Talk to members of the ECU staff, the legislature is floating a new method of funding around that will actually CUT funding per graduate student putting us further down the line in how we are measured towards R1.

Maybe the "discounted degree" programs at ECSU, Pembroke, and WCU are causing a budget deficit for the whole system.

I can tell you point blank that ECU is currently not even attempting to be R1. Blame who you wish.

Without R1 status you can bring back John Wooden and Bear Bryant to Greenville and never be more than what we are. Also, it is hard to hire and keep exceptional football coaches when they see the ceiling we are operating under with no known way of getting out.

People, entities, and universities like to associate and play with peers. We aren't R1 and based on recent invites..that is important if you want to be invited to the party.

Oh....and do you have any idea how much research money ECU is missing from private business and endowments who want only R1 researchers to do their work?

For whatever reason the NC legislature doesn't care. Obviously, Virginia does with 5 publicly funded R1's with a smaller population and tax base than NC has.
