Faculty Awards and Nominations

Ohio State is home to outstanding faculty - brilliant minds working to solve the world's most complex problems.  

The Office of Knowledge Enterprise is focused on ensuring Ohio State faculty are recognized at the forefront in their fields through a strategy focused on major external awards and nominations coming out of the university. Led by Tina Henkin, Office of Knowledge Enterprise faculty fellow, early work has begun, including forming a faculty task force to identify and build this strategy. Activities will also include surveys, workshops and an award tracking system.

Mission Statement of the Awards and Nominations Task Force

The goal of the Awards and Nominations Task Force is to assist faculty and university leadership in facilitating successful nominations of university faculty for highly prestigious external awards, with a focus on the National Academies and the American Academy of Arts & Sciences. These efforts include helping in identification of candidates, serving as a clearing-house for nomination efforts, and providing administrative support. An additional goal is to improve visibility of previous faculty successes. The Task Force also seeks to support leadership in the recognition of the importance of these awards to the university.
