The Vice President for Research promotes Ohio University's research mission to advance excellence in the search for new information, knowledge, understanding and creative endeavors. By managing the university's investment in scholarship and its relationships with external sponsors, including the protection and commercialization of intellectual property, the Vice President for Research staff helps advance and promote the creative achievements of the faculty, students and staff.
To meet these goals, we provide support and assistance to faculty, students and staff who are engaged in research, scholarship and creative activity at Ohio University. We create policies to encourage collaborative scholarship. Competitive programs such as the Ohio University Research Committee Awards and Baker Awards support individual faculty research projects. Our offices and departments provide daily administrative and research assistance to faculty and students and we promote the achievements and capacity to all the university's partners.
