From Excellence to Eminence
Just after his return to Ohio State, Gordon Gee set down his vision of the path that would take the university “from excellence to eminence.”
To become eminent, Ohio State must work and be perceived as “one university,” driven by a common vision, aligned by a compelling mission, united in our values and focused on six strategic goals:
- One University
- Students First
- Faculty and Staff Talent & Culture
- Research Prominence
- Outreach and Collaboration
- Operational and Financial Soundness & Simplicity
To achieve this, we must build a healthy, high-performance culture, and it will take each one of us to create that culture. Visit often for information and tools to serve as a leader in building that high-performance culture.
This is Ohio State’s – and your – moment to create long-term advantage and become one of the most innovative universities in the nation.
E. Gordon Gee on why now:
“People see this as a moment of real challenge, and it is. But I also view it as a moment of real opportunity. We need to be the architects of our own destiny rather than its victims. And we will do so by focusing on talent and culture and using those to create major changes in the way we do our work.”
