OT: Troy receives $3.5 mil for PPE research
Troy received their third grant from the NIST. The first two grants were to develop a research lab on campus, and this third one is to fund the actual research Troy will be doing. Troy will also be offering post-doctoral positions.

For those who may know, does this mean that Troy will be considered a lower-tier "research institution" soon? I'm not sure how that works.

RE: OT: Troy receives $3.5 mil for PPE research
It sounds like from the article that Troy is building towards being a research institution. Right now, the Carnegie Classification has Troy listed as M1: Large Master's Program. For Troy to make the jump into the Research University category, they must award at least 20 research/scholarship doctoral degrees and have at least $5 million in total research expenditures in an annual period.

From the Carnegie Classifications Website:
R1 (very high research): UT-Arlington, Georgia State
R2 (high research): Georgia Southern, South Alabama, UL Lafayette, Texas State, Arkansas State, UA-Little Rock
R3 (Doctoral awarding): UL Monroe
M1 (Master's Program, Large): Appalachian State, Troy, Coastal Carolina

Here's the Methodology

Interesting. That's exciting from an academic perspective.
Thank you for that info.

Yeah. Some of those fans are really, really strange. If it was UAB or USA wanting to act that way, it would make more sense. But FAU?

Actually, I think it’s just one odd owl acting strange

It may happen. Troy seems to be trying to expand their academic profile.
