UC Riverside joins IRIS, becoming the consortium’s first minority-serving institution

The University of California, Riverside recently became a member of the Institute for Research on Innovation and Science (IRIS), a consortium of America’s leading higher educational institutions focused on using big administrative data to demonstrate the public value of research and higher education.

With more than $300 million in grants and contracts — a number that has nearly doubled since 2018  — UC Riverside has expanded its research profile well beyond its original agricultural focus. Membership in IRIS will provide the university data-based tools to understand, explain and improve the impacts of its research enterprise on the local, state and national economies, and on the career and academic paths of its faculty and graduate students.
