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 Georgia ties with the Ohio State University at #16.
Some individuals who may have been involved in federal spend decisions with the university include Governor Brian Kemp; their Chief of Staff Martin “Trey” Kilpatrick; University of Georgia President Jere W. Morehead; their Chief of Staff and Vice President, Marketing and Communications Dr. Kathy R. Pharr; and their Vice President, Government Relations (Interim) J. Griffin “Griff” Doyle.
