Russell Group - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1008 words)
The Russell Group of universities is a self-selected group of large research-led British universities; 18 of its 19 members are in the top 20 in terms of research funding.
Unlike the Russell Group of universities, most of America's most well-known universities are privately funded; as a result, these institutions do not have the same interest in forming a lobby group as UK universities, which are all state-funded, with the exception of the University of Buckingham.
The group is chaired by Professor Michael Sterling, the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Birmingham.
