This second meeting also included three “focus group sessions” on:

Institutional Environment: Research University Finance and Administration

Knowledge Capital: Academic Research Agendas, Resources, Organization, and Commercialization

Human Capital: Doctoral Education, Postdoctoral Training, Labor Markets, and Careers

Each group included committee members along with about 10 invited guests nominated by AAU, APLU, COGR, CGS, and NPA. These sessions were designed to ask probing questions about these three areas of inquiry in order to elicit input for the committee’s deliberation. The sessions began with each invited guest speaking for up to five minutes
