This effort is led by the Association of American Universities, the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities and the leaders of their member universities, who are concerned about cuts to federal investments in research and higher education at a time when other nations are pouring resources into these areas. These leaders believe the nation needs sustained investments in research and higher education to develop the ideas, the people, and the innovations that power the nation’s economy, create jobs, improve health, and strengthen our national security, ensuring that the U.S. maintains its role as global leader. They also believe that the growth supported by innovation will help the nation address its fiscal challenges.
