56 Office of the Vice President for Research N ORMAN C AMPUS AND N ORMAN C AMPUS P ROGRAMS AT OU-T ULSAReflections To maintain its ranking of 94th, OU R&D expenditures would have to increase, on average, $10.3 million per year. To improve its ranking to 84th by 2021, OU R&D expenditures would have to increase, on average, $12.0 million per year. The current average rate of expenditure increase is $5.94 million a year.

57 Office of the Vice President for Research N ORMAN C AMPUS AND N ORMAN C AMPUS P ROGRAMS AT OU-T ULSA Future Activities, Budget Outlook and Challenges

58 Office of the Vice President for Research N ORMAN C AMPUS AND N ORMAN C AMPUS P ROGRAMS AT OU-T ULSA OU has considerable unrealized potential and thus tremendous opportunity to – Think bigger – well beyond our traditional horizons – toward problems that require new approaches, frameworks and support mechanisms – Raise expectations and implement more effective processes for accountability and productivity measurement – Seek and obtain funding for national centers and large projects – Dramatically increase our engagement with Federal agencies, especially DOD and DOE – Submit higher quality, more competitive proposals overall – Develop more effective ways of investing in research to promote growth and prominence – Establish additional Federal presence in Norman – Develop new support infrastructures and contracting vehicles – Engage more effectively with industry, HSC and NIH activities – Be more active in driving the national research agenda – Build local and national awareness of our research capabilities – Recognize that the “let 1000 flowers bloom” model long used in academic research is no longer effective as the primary philosophy of achieving institutional success 58 Going Back to the Aspire 2020 Slides From Two Years Ago...

59 Office of the Vice President for Research N ORMAN C AMPUS AND N ORMAN C AMPUS P ROGRAMS AT OU-T ULSA Continued strong push on DSI, particularly engaging non-physical science and engineering – continuing to unlock the potential resident within existing faculty Strong push on CARD, building linkages with agencies, labs and industry and bringing in fully soft-funded non-faculty researchers See notable success in establishing national centers (a new USO requirement), either in response to solicitations or via us creating our own opportunity Develop medical imaging and health disparities focus with HSC Identify a few priority areas for 5-year strategic investment Begin working toward one or two more research “pillars” for the Norman Campus in addition to weather/climate … Leads to Our Emphasis for the Next Few Years

60 Office of the Vice President for Research N ORMAN C AMPUS AND N ORMAN C AMPUS P ROGRAMS AT OU-T ULSA Move to the next level in Undergraduate Research across the Norman Campus Continue investing in core areas of strength and develop new areas Implement Incentives and Rewards for big ideas and achievements (fix SRI?); broaden pitch (e.g., local  national foundations) Synergy rather than competition between teaching and research Launch Broader Impacts Initiative – an opportunity to be a national role model Organize thematically to enhance interdisciplinary collaboration for attacking problems at the boundaries Create Faculty Leadership Academy Provide assistance to colleges and departments in nominating faculty for prestigious awards Emphasis for the Next Few Years

61 Office of the Vice President for Research N ORMAN C AMPUS AND N ORMAN C AMPUS P ROGRAMS AT OU-T ULSA Challenges at OU Going Forward “These are the best of times, and challenging (but not the worst of) times” (D. Boren) We don’t want to maintain current rate of growth but increase it strategically and thoughtfully! Flat (or declining) Federal agency research budgets Pay down of existing commitments from VPR Office while making new investments  VPR budget very constrained Faculty start-up, equipment, retention, renovation, space, proposal cost sharing, seed funding Faculty and staff morale, which at this point remains high!

62 Office of the Vice President for Research N ORMAN C AMPUS AND N ORMAN C AMPUS P ROGRAMS AT OU-T ULSA Possible Reforms to Benefit R&D

63 Office of the Vice President for Research N ORMAN C AMPUS AND N ORMAN C AMPUS P ROGRAMS AT OU-T ULSA Status of National Academy Study and OMB A-21 Task Force National Academy study of the health/future of research universities Key topics to be addressed – The role and future of higher education in the US (e.g., declining state and public support, costs) – Basic and applied research – Graduate education – Innovation – Financial stability, compliance burdens Consensus report expected in early 2012 OMB began a study that focused on A-21 issues

64 Office of the Vice President for Research N ORMAN C AMPUS AND N ORMAN C AMPUS P ROGRAMS AT OU-T ULSA Possible Outcomes All Federal agencies must use negotiated F&A rate unless prohibited by statute (OU’s effective recovery is 20% overall, 30% for research) Create mandatory cost sharing exemption for research institutions Allow all universities to be eligible for the Utility Cost Adjustment Create a Compliance Cost Pool to add to F&A calculation Replace time and effort reporting with a more streamlined method Allow direct charging of administrative activities Reduce sub-recipient monitoring to a single annual audit Harmonize Federal regulations regarding human subjects research

65 Office of the Vice President for Research N ORMAN C AMPUS AND N ORMAN C AMPUS P ROGRAMS AT OU-T ULSA Summary Thoughts We are seeing substantial progress in research and creative activity owing to the hard work of faculty!! This progress is reflected not in numbers alone, but in scholarly output, achievements and recognition of people – what our University IS! We want to do everything we can to unlock the additional potential resident within faculty in all disciplines to achieve all that is possible for faculty individually and for OU institutionally How does this happen? – Having a solid plan and being strategic – Working together – faculty, chairs/directors, deans, VPs in ALL COLLEGES – Providing necessary resources – Removing barriers, perceived and real, and continuing to change our culture ORS IS ABSOLUTELY CENTRAL TO OUR PROGRESS TO DATE AND TO ACHIEVING OUR GOALS FOR THE FUTURE!
