About the Journal

In publication since 1997, The Merrill Series on the Research Mission of Public Universities is a series of papers that represents exchanges between faculty and administrators who are committed to nationally-competitive research at their state schools.  Participants who attend the annual Merrill Research Retreat share best practices for supporting innovative faculty, building research programs between institutions and enhancing institutional rankings.  This series of retreats and papers is made possible by benefactors Virginia and Fred Merrill.
