The Leadership Connect data science team looked at federal awards with public universities over the past five years to analyze how much government work they receive and which offices work with each school. We then compare a school to their peers. We are posting our findings for the Top 20 Public schools according to US News’ popular ranking.

The University of California, Los Angeles Bruins tied for the first spot there.

Some individuals who may have been involved in federal spend decisions with the university include Governor Gavin Newsom; their Deputy Chief of Staff Jason Elliott; University of California, Los Angeles Chancellor Dr. Gene D. Block; and Associate Vice Chancellor of Government and Community Relations Jennifer T. Poulakidas.
