Today, at a press conference in Washington, the National Research Council released a new report entitled, "Research Universities and the Future of America: Ten Breakthrough Actions Vital to Our Nation's Prosperity and Security."  This report is a follow-up to the "Rising Above the Gathering Storm" report and was prepared by a committee of academic, business, and government leaders, including Chad Holliday, former DuPont CEO.  The report responds to a request from Congress for “the top ten actions that Congress, the federal government, state governments, research universities, and others could take to assure the ability of the American research university to maintain the excellence in research and doctoral education needed to help the United States compete, prosper, and achieve national goals for health, energy, the environment, and security in the global community of the 21st century."

The report, including a summary, can be downloaded from the National Academies website at http://sites.nationalacademies.org/PGA/bhew/researchuniversities/index.htm

The Wall Street Journal published an article about the release of this report, which can be found at http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702303734204577466470850370002.html?mod=googlenews_wsj
