Research excellence

Gov. Ted Strickland announced last week that Ohio University has been named a Center of Excellence in Energy and the Environment. The designation recognizes the institution’s state and national reputation for energy and pollution research, as well as its potential to create jobs in the field.

The area of energy and the environment encompasses the research of more than 30 faculty and staff members at Ohio University. Current research focuses on the production and delivery of energy and fuels, as well as the monitoring and control of the air and water pollution that results from fuel production.

Spotlight on volunteers

Angela Eddings '94, '98 is a dedicated alumna of Ohio University, which she refers to as "the best school in Ohio." Currently a teacher for the Columbus City Schools at Africentric Early College, she has encouraged 10 former students to attend Ohio University based on her love of the school and the stories she would share with her English classes. "I love OU and am very proud of the quality of African American students I help attend the university," Angela said.

"Angela is committed to supporting undergraduate students as they strive to reach their educational and personal goals," said Melanie L. Hayden, Ph.D., Interim Director, Undergraduate Admissions. We are especially grateful to her for assisting us with the recruitment of future generations of Bobcats."
