Who knew Case Western Reserve was a national powerhouse for collegiante competitive Desi A Cappella??

Network of Desi A Cappella (NDA) is an endeavor to bring together and foster relationships within the rapidly expanding collegiate South Asian A Cappella community

http://www.desiacappella.org/about


1) National ranked #1...ahead of those California schools: http://www.desiacappella.org/standings

2) And they've apparently been good for over a decade: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dhamakapella

AKRON, Ohio - Two student-led teams from Case Western Reserve University topped the 12th annual LaunchTown Entrepreneurship Awards on April 16 at Well Community Development Corporation (CDC).

Five teams of finalists from colleges and universities throughout Northeast Ohio (out of 44 entrants) pitched their ideas for a new technology-based business, product or service at the event to a team of judges made up of entrepreneurs and professors from a wide range of industries.

This is a big number of new brain power staying in CLE.

I love this comment:  "In 1981, only four people from my graduating class stayed in Cleveland"

23 percent of Case Western Reserve University's 2017 graduates working full-time stayed in Cleveland, survey shows
Updated May 2; Posted May 1
By Karen Farkas, cleveland.com kfarkas@Cleveland.com

CLEVELAND, Ohio -  About a quarter of Case Western Reserve University's 2017 graduates who reported working full-time have remained in Cleveland, according to the school's annual First Destination Survey.

53 percent are employed full time and 37 percent are seeking advanced degrees. It is only the second time in recent years that at least 50 percent of a class has gone straight to full-time employment.

They probably meant from their department, in 1981. 

They must mean 23% in Cleveland proper (or metro)  because 39% stayed in Northeast Ohio if one crunches the numbers.

How did you get the 39% figure?  I thought maybe I missed something, so I went back and read it again, but the only figure I could see was 122/523.  The 220 that stayed in Ohio would be 42%, but that's the entire state.

If only Cleveland had an Ohio State or Pitt in town, as other regional big-cities have - and could keep 23% of that graduating class local! CWRU is well-respected, but small. Cleveland - and really, NEO - simply lacks that sizeable, major university that helps feed so many citites' local populations with grads year after year - and can't develop one overnight...

A city like Indianapolis also lacks a major university - but an hour each way are Indiana and Purdue - without another major Indiana city to compete for the talent... Can't say the same for 3-C Ohio...

^Kent State is one county away and has a student population of over 40,000. Cleveland State is nearing 20,000. There have to be bigger issues at play regarding keeping talent. Growing the talent pool is critical and I think Cleveland State is a big part of that. 

But Case's numbers are heartening since those grads will no doubt be working in eds and meds locally.

88% of 42% is 39%   It said 88% of those staying in Ohio were NE Ohio.

Not sure if people realize this, but CWRU is the largest private university in the state of Ohio.  And its economic impact is defintely magnified with its affiliation with Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals, and the biotech industry.

From a quick unscientific comparison to a similar metro of Pittsburgh, Cleveland is surprisingly not that far away off sheer numbers of college students.  Yes there is a big difference between Pitt vs CSU, but where Pittsburgh shines is having an additional large university in Duquesne.

Pittsburgh:
University of Pittsburgh  28,649   
Carnegie Mellon University   12,569   
Duquesne University   10,364   
Robert Morris University 4,783
Point Park University   3,827
Chatham University   2,300

TOTAL = 62,492

But if you count within approx 1 hour drive:

Indiana University of Pennsylvania 15,379
California University of Pennsylvania   8,608
Slippery Rock University    8,559

GRAND TOTAL = 95,038 (note: this number is a little larger when you add up the smaller schools under 2000 within an hour)

Cleveland:
Cleveland State University 17,260
Case Western Reserve University    11,340
Baldwin Wallace University    3,979
John Carroll University 3,709
Oberlin College 2,978
Notre Dame College   2,100

TOTAL = 41,366

But if you count within approx one hour drive:

Kent State University   29,477
University of Akron   23,962
Walsh University   2,500

GRAND TOTAL = 97,305

I would say that some of these comparisons miss a critical factor. It is not just the size of the university but 1. if it is residential, 2. if it is a traditional college (i.e., direct from high school four year program), and 3. if it draws from outside the region. Residential helps because students live nearby and can support retail, traditional college helps because students are more willing to travel to live in that city vs a mid-career professional, and national draws help because it introduces new people to the region. I would say that CSU is not there yet on these three points (but is moving in the right direction).

They're not going to win that one.  I agree the "State" label is not a plus; it might be better than University of Ohio at Cleveland, however.

HUGE news out of Case Western Reserve...another large collaboration with Microsoft, this time on Magnetic Resonance Fingerprinting (the first collaboration being the Microsoft HoloLens):

Here is the official link: http://www.case.edu/mrf

Microsoft partners with Case Western on quantum computing and Hololens tech that improves MRIs
BY CLARE MCGRANE on May 18, 2018 at 11:28 am

MRIs are one of the most commonly used diagnostic tools, but the technology behind that imaging has remained largely the same for decades.

Researchers at Cleveland’s Case Western Reserve University are working to improve that technology, and Friday they got a big boost from a new partnership with Microsoft.

The tech giant announced it is working with Case Western researchers to put advanced quantum computing to use in creating higher quality imaging technology, as well as using the Hololens augmented reality platform to present the images to doctors in 3D.

Commencement speech from this weekend:

Former Cleveland Clinic CEO offers unexpected advice at commencement
MAY 21, 2018

Former Cleveland Clinic CEO Toby Cosgrove told Case Western Reserve University’s Class of 2019 Sunday about a topic he said he felt “eminently qualified to address.”

Leadership? No. Health care? No. Cardiac surgery? Yet again, no.

Instead, he focused on failure—namely, his own.

More than a half-dozen Nobel Prize winners coming to Case Western Reserve campus to mark 50 years since seminal theory began to emerge
MAY 24, 2018

Every October, the world’s largest and most prestigious group of physicists gathers in Stockholm, Sweden, to honor those among their ranks who will join a century-old pantheon of Nobel Prize winners.

This June, Cleveland could give Stockholm a run for its Nobel presence.

As many as eight former winners of the Nobel Prize for Physics are expected on the Case Western Reserve University campus to mark the 50th anniversary of the Standard Model of Physics. That foundational theoretical model coalesced in 1967-68 and has gradually become accepted as the best explanation of all matter and how it holds together.

^ not sure.

Case Western Reserve, Ohio State are NIH powerhouses
June 05, 2018 10:53 am
SCOTT SUTTELL   

 Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News notes that the NIH "invests nearly $37.3 billion annually in medical research," with more than 80% of the funding "warded through nearly 50,000 competitive grants to more than 300,000 researchers at more than 2,500 universities, medical schools and other research institutions in every U.S. state and around the world."

It ranked the 50 universities (including medical schools), research institutions and teaching hospitals by how much NIH funding they have received during the current 2018 federal fiscal year, through May 29. (FY 2018 ends on Sept 30.)

Case Western Reserve is the top institution in Ohio, with $83,013,091 in NIH funding toward 153 awards, the publication reports.

Also in the top 50 is Ohio State University, at No. 37 nationally with $72,828,280 in NIH funding toward 178 awards.

Tallying NIH grants by institution or city seems surprisingly tricky. I think in part this is due to recipients hacing multiple institutional affiliations, or recipient teams being spread around multiple institutions.  Also, the Clinic's Lerner College of Medicine is technically part of Case, so if you lump all of Case's grants together, the NIH website shows something like $148M.  But the NIH shows no grants to the Clinic outside of the Lerner College of Medicine, so who knows how this counting really works.

^ Yes, it's mushy, but the the Clinic shows $108 million from the NIH and the NIH shows something like $60 million to the Lerner. I do know the Clinic also gets significant grants from the Natl. Inst. of Science (Institute of Medicine), DoD, and VA. And probably Agriculture, which even has its own Foreign Service corps.

Here in DC there is a thriving and costly consulting business in helping schools and institutions wade through the federal grant process. I think it's intended to be confusing.

The environmental review process for major transportation projects also has a very powerful constituency in these large engineering firms like AECOM, WSP-Parsons Brinckerhoff, LTK, etc. It's why it takes an average of 10 years and 5-15% of total capital costs for a transportation project to go from idea to ribbon cutting.
