This research will use qualitative and quantitative measures to determine differences in strategy between a successful research I institution, and two other institutions that are experiencing financial and other budgetary constraints. Institutions selected will be based on recent U.S. News & World Report rankings of institutions. The source of the data will be archival and would include interviews and surveys. The objective is to determine best practices in strategy and implementation that can be applied to other institutions to gain a sustainable competitive advantage. Another goal is to add to the body of research about higher education institutions.
