Abstract: This paper points out that a high degree of institutional diversity obviates any single theory from explaining the research strategies of all universities. Like all organizations, universities want to expand their scale, scope or depth of operations. In this pursuit, universities in the United States compete with each other for students, for resources that supports research, and, ultimately, for prestige. Decisions about research move through different contexts where multiple actors, using disparate principles, make key decisions about quality, priorities, and relevance; No single strategy explains every action. The aggregation of these actions appears to be within the purview of institutional leadership.
