Improving the human condition

We carry out OSU’s land-grant mission and support people across the lifespan through research by creating new knowledge in the areas of health promotion, disease prevention, education, design and aviation. Our specific expertise includes children, parents and families, schools and teachers, nutrition, flight safety, fire-protective clothing and more.

Collaborative research efforts

Our faculty and students participate in ongoing, established research programs. These diverse initiatives focus on finding integrative solutions to enhance lives and support individuals and communities.

Student research opportunities

Students gain research experience working alongside faculty and are empowered to conduct their own, independent research projects with a mentor. Undergraduate students participate in OSU’s Freshman Research Scholars program and may apply for Wentz Research Grants. Graduate students attend and present at national conferences, participate in research competitions and earn financial awards to support their work.

By the numbersWe continually strive to increase our annual research impact.
