Geography's increasing proportion of the College's SRAD

September 30, 2019

A few years ago I blogged on the topic of SRAD  (Sponsored Research Administration Distribution). I showed that, on a per faculty basis, Geography was doing quite well relative to the College as a whole. Another way to look at things is to consider the proportion of the college SRAD that comes from Geography. The table below lists the fiscal year and the proportion over the past five years. Note that the 2020 refers to the earning period of July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019.

  • 2016   17.3%
  • 2017   22.2%
  • 2018   25.1%
  • 2019   25.7%
  • 2020   31.3%

The upward trend is remarkable. Geography now accounts for almost a third of all SRAD generated by the College! A shout out to Chris Uejio and Sarah Lester who account for a majority of this proportion.
