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 U.S. News’ popular ranking.

The University of Virginia ties with the University of Michigan at #3.

Some individuals who may have been involved in federal spend decisions with the university include Governor Glenn A. Youngkin; their Chief of Staff Jeffrey W. Goettman; their Deputy Chief of Staff and Communications Director Rebecca Glover; University of Virginia President James E. Ryan; Senior Vice President, Operations and State Government Relations Colette Sheehy; Vice President, Communications and Chief Communications Officer David W. Martel; and Executive Director, Federal Relations Julia A. Smith.
