IU President Michael A. McRobbie said faculty and staff "should feel immense pride in this extraordinary achievement" because research is vital to the school's growth.

The university says the $509 million its faculty spent on research represents about a $1.2 billion economic impact on the state of Indiana.

IU's economic impact is reflected in the number of start-up companies the university has helped launch, particularly those in information technology and the life sciences.
