The Promise Lives

A Place Where Promise Lives

As both president and an alumnus of Ohio University (OHIO), I am pleased to present this website highlighting some of the many accomplishments of our students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Although these endeavors are but a sampling of the achievements occurring each day at our University, they represent an ongoing tradition of excellence and demonstrate the many ways that the promise envisioned by our founders in 1804 continues to live in the 21st century.

OHIO students and faculty are making a difference through a variety of far-reaching initiatives. Whether it’s assisting Louisiana residents suffering in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and the Gulf oil spill, installing a solar-powered water pump for residents of a village in Ghana, or working on environmentally-friendly fuels that may benefit our planet, we take pride in the work of our students and faculty who carry the promise of OHIO with them on our six campuses, in their communities, and around the world.

Thank you for taking the time to review some of our achievements. I invite you to begin exploring the site by clicking on the "Access Report" button at the right.
