The Innovation Issue

Innovations in teaching, learning and research will help prepare science students to tackle our most pressing scientific and societal challenges.

It is an exciting time in Science at OSU! This fall, we welcomed our largest class in five years: 1,069 undergraduate students, about 35% from underrepresented populations. We are committed to the success of all of our students, faculty, staff and alumni. This issue focuses on innovation in the classroom, online, in research and in our leadership, which is truly transforming the College.

We are making progress on our strategic goals, especially in data science, distance education and diversity. OSU programs are nationally ranked. We are expanding our online courses and reaching out to diverse learners. We launched online graduate programs in data analytics. To enhance student success and build leaders in science, we are looking to increase resources for undergraduate research, internships and study abroad.

This is all a reflection of our commitment to excellence, diversity and harmony. Thank you for your invaluable contributions to science and to OSU!

All the best,

Sastry G. Pantula
Dean, College of Science
