"From health care research that may help people around the globe to supporting innovations and initiatives that spur economic development in our region, OHIO continues to expand the frontiers of the possible," writes McDavis. "Since our founding in 1804, we have been working to fulfill our mission of advancing knowledge on the frontiers of discovery while serving as a beacon of learning and opportunity."
The University's achievements are grouped in the following categories: Global Perspectives, Local Action; Arts, Creativity and Bobcat Pride; Scholarship and Teaching; Research and Discovery; and Together Making a Difference.
