Annual Report 2015-2016 cover image

With annual research expenditures of $9.7 billion and spanning eleven states from the High Plains to the Eastern Seaboard, the universities of the Big Ten have an enormous influence in research and education far beyond their geographical footprint.

The newly released Big Ten Academic Alliance Annual Report 2015-2016 details the collective power and progress of this enterprise, highlighting projects such as library collaborations that have resulted in space savings of over 73 miles of linear shelf space; a nationally-recognized model for diversifying the professoriate; and strategic sourcing agreements that save our universities more than $15.7 million.

For almost 60 years, Big Ten universities have worked together on equations large and small, building on their trusted partnerships and collaborative spirit to increase and enrich opportunities for faculty and students and advance research and teaching.
