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.

Florida State University ties with Rutgers University, the University of Maryland, and the University of Washington at #19.

Some individuals who may have been involved in federal spend decisions with the university include Governor Ron DeSantis; their Chief of Staff James Uthmeier; Florida State University President Rick McCullough; their Assistant Vice President, University Communications Dennis Schnittker; and their Federal Relations Contact Beth (Eigenmann) Hodges.
