URA membership includes renowned institutions around the world
From California to Massachusetts, and from the U.K. to Japan, many of the most distinguished research universities around the globe are members of URA. Our membership includes universities from 35 U.S. states and is open to universities with a significant graduate program and a demonstrated sustained commitment to research in the physical, biological, and engineering sciences as evidenced by, for example, a Carnegie classification of “R-1: Highest Research Activity,” or demonstrated equivalence. Prospective member institutions should exhibit academic excellence and a productive scholarly output of publications in science and engineering.
Our member institutions have been or are involved in numerous groundbreaking explorations, including the international Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility/Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, the Muon g–2 Experiment, the NOvA Neutrino Experiment, and the Higgs boson discovery, among many others.
