STARKVILLE, Miss.--A new report from the National Science Foundation again finds Mississippi State Humanities ranked among the nation’s top 40 research institutions.

The recently released NSF Higher Education Research and Development Survey for Fiscal Year 2014 places the university at 37th overall among public and private institutions in the country, based on $2.1 million in total research and development expenditures.

Research at Mississippi State is an important success story, said David Shaw, vice president for research and economic development.

“Our faculty, staff and students engaged in world-class research are solving problems, developing new technologies, and creating opportunities that benefit our state and nation,” he said.

The survey is the primary source of information about research and development expenditures at U.S. colleges and universities, according to the NSF.
