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.

Rutgers University ties Florida State 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 Phil Murphy; their Chief of Staff (Acting) Zakiya W. Smith Ellis; Rutgers University President Dr. Jonathan Scott Holloway; their Chief of Staff Brian Ballentine; and their Vice President, Federal Relations Francine Newsome Pfeiffer.
