It is a pleasure for me to release this 1999 annual report, which summarizes the University of New Mexico's (UNM) sponsored activities for fiscal year 1999 (i.e., July 1, 1998 - June 30, 1999, FY99). The purpose of this report is to present statistics of FY99 sponsored research, public service and instruction efforts at the main campus and Health Sciences Center (HSC). UNM, a Research I Institution, is ranked in the top 60 of the nation's public universities and colleges, based on annual research and development (R&D) expenditures (see p. 11). UNM faculty have continued their commitment to excellence by seeking sponsored project support and producing scholarly and creative works. While the majority of research at UNM is faculty based, there is a noticeable level of activity which involve non-faculty initiatives. The scholarly and creative works are listed in Faculty Publications and Creative Works and the details of contract and grant activities are compiled in the Contract and Grant Awards Report, both of which are published annually by the Office of Research Services. The awards received for FY99 total $218.6M, of which $148.6M is attributed to the main campus. These awards assist in providing resources that are necessary to improve the quality of research and teaching at UNM. They also enhance the opportunities for students to be trained in state-of-the-art laboratories in a variety of disciplines. UNM centers continue to flourish and promote interdisciplinary research. They acquired $43M in awards and were responsible for supporting numerous faculty, staff and students from a broad spectrum of disciplines on campus.
