College of Arts & Sciences faculty and students ask a lot questions in their pursuit of new knowledge.

Ohio University is a research-intensive institution, and each year College of Arts & Sciences faculty and students produce dozens of books, hundreds of peer-reviewed articles, and hundreds of conference presentations.

"The No. 1 thing about doing research—it’s fun," says Dr. Sarah Wyatt. "We do this because we’re curious. We want to know how something works. It’s a lot of hard work. But you have to keep reminding yourself: This is the information we’re looking for. And when you find it, you’re the first person to ever have seen it. You’re the first person to know this. That’s the coolest part."

 

“I accept the honor tonight and we celebrate it together, for all of the women, all of the gay people, all of the LGBT people who have worked so hard to produce important research here at OHIO,” said Dr. Susan Burgess, the first woman in the College of Arts & Sciences to be named a distinguished professor. “And for everyone who has worked to make OHIO a more welcoming and inclusive place over the years.”
