The responsibility to develop and maintain laboratory facilities falls primarily on the Departments and Colleges. Staffing and equipment support for these facilities is always a challenge, and it has not been possible in the regular university budgeting process, which is constrained by tights state budgets, to commit new recurring central funds. One strategy adopted over the past decade has been to leverage faculty startup packages and/or major grant submissions with commitments for recurring central funds, often from budgeted increases in Indirect Cost revenues. This has been quite successful and critical in recruiting faculty, who do make their labs available for others' use. However, beyond these opportunistic actions, there are a number of research facilities that are supported by central funds and configured to be generally-accessible to the broad community.
