Benefits of Research Collaboration at WVU:

The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Higher Education has classified approximately 146 U.S. institutions as having R1 status. R1 universities are at the forefront of research and innovation, and they receive federal or private funding specifically for their academic research.

R1 institutions are recognized as the best research universities in the country — and West Virginia University is one of them.

In this resource, we will examine the value of research and collaboration at a Carnegie R1 institution, and we'll answer questions like:

  • What is an R1 institution?

  • What are some of the best research universities in the U.S.?

  • What is research collaboration in graduate school?

  • What are the best research degrees for grad students?

  • What are some of WVU's noteworthy research achievements?

If you're ready to learn more about attending one of the best research universities in the U.S., then we encourage you to download our Research Collaboration Guide!
