Discovery is a never-ending pursuit at Ohio University. In laboratories and minds across our campuses, the search for answers to some of society’s most pressing issues is underway. One such effort can be found at Ohio University’s Institute for Sustainable Energy and the Environment. Through the leadership of Dr. David Bayless, an expert on coal and biomass gasification, the center conducts research on air quality, fuel diversity, electrochemical technology and other critical issues that affect people’s quality of life and the health of our planet.
Like Dr. Bayless, our prized faculty members are in high demand. To further their efforts and keep them at OHIO, we must increase our number of endowed chairs and professorships. The resources and prestige that chairs and professorships provide are invaluable to our University and to the concept of discovery.
We also must continue to invest in student research and creative activity. When we supply funds for undergraduate and graduate projects, we provide students with that extra push to take a bold step on the road of discovery. These funds can make the difference in whether a dance major is able to present original choreography in person or is reduced to send it by video. Or whether students have the resources to present a mock business plan to executives overseas.
Join us in helping to unlock answers and inspire greatness. Supply a graduate student stipend so that he or she can work one-on-one with a prized faculty member. Endow a chair or professorship and ensure the quality of education for which Ohio University is renowned. Purchase and donate the newest and fastest technology in our labs. Arrange for a visiting artist to share their creative wisdom to our students.
The choices are endless.
