SDSU Raises Near-Record $130M For Research
San Diego State University pulled in $130 million for research during fiscal 2015, the second highest figure in campus history and the largest figure of any California State University campus. As part of the CSU system, San Diego State is primarily devoted to teaching. But the campus decided in the 1980s to develop a large research program that has challenged some University of California campuses for money, as well as those in the CSU. The $24.9 million SDSU obtained from the National Institutes of Health in fiscal 2015 was higher than UC Riverside and UC Santa Barbara got from the same agency (Robbins, 7/25)
