Over the past two years Ohio University has taken steps to develop a strategy – now designated the Innovation Strategy – to ensure that the institution continues to engage substantively with the challenges of the 21st century.
The Innovation Strategy Interim Report, released in September 2014, identified four broad portfolios of major challenges, each encompassing a suite of niches for possible investment. The niches represent significant problems, linked to areas in which OHIO has existing assets or expertise, and offering the potential for investment with high-level impact.
The Innovation Strategy encompasses the full spectrum of the university's activities – including teaching and learning, research and scholarship, creative activity, and the operational functions of the university. It also aims to incentivize and leverage interdisciplinary and multi-college collaboration.
