Nevada’s legislature was visionary in 1959 when it created DRI as the environmental research campus of the state’s university system. DRI has flourished as an entrepreneurial campus of 500 scientists, engineers and technicians who leveraged the state’s $8.2 million allocation last year into $45.5 million in revenue. In addition, DRI’s research faculty are self-supported and do not receive state funding or tenure.
Today, that vision is threatened by the proposed budget reduction to higher education, which equates to a decrease in the state’s research investment:
